"In an era of human depersonalization, the importance oi 
small, face-to-face encounters between Christians becomes 
doubly necessary, and the Christian Action Movement offers 
a framework within which this can take place in the midst 
of large parishes and large social groupings. The centrality 
of the Bible and the concern to reach out from the group 
into the larger community furnish points of contact with 
non-Catholics that could give the Movement great ecumeni- 
cal significance." ROBERT McAFEE BROWN, Professor 
of Religion, Stanford University

"However, the true worth of the handbook lies beneath 
the surface; — in its universality and adaptability. The plan 
for regular meetings of prayer, discussion and planning, 
and the regional organization structure, can be used by any 
Christian group hoping to find a way of vitalizing the apos- 
tolic vocation of its members. Alumni groups, wondering 
what to do between fund-raising campaigns, third orders 
concerned with adapting an old spirit to the needs of the 
Church today, professional men and women concerned about 
their witness as Christians: all will find here a theology and 
social psychology, plainly set forth, and a modern technique 
by which their meetings will be made interesting and fruit-

"The real challenge 
and excitement in my career is helping 
businessmen solve their problems." 

"From the day I went with Mass 
Mutual 8 years ago, I started becoming 
an integral part of our professional and 
business community. 
"You see, a life insurance man just 
naturally becomes involved with his 
client's future. Many of my clients 
began describing their business prob- 
lems along with their family needs. As 
a result I had to increase my technical 
studies. This broader field was tremen- 
dously interesting and exciting to me. 
Soon I found myself specializing in the 
application of life insurance to all 
phases of business, including pension 

and profit-sharing plans. 
"One of the things that appeals to me 
most about being in business for my- 
self is this opportunity to specialize 
exactly where I find the greatest 
challenge and stimulation. 
"Of course, it helps a lot to be asso- 
ciated with a Company that has an elite 
reputation, over $3 billion in assets and 
is more than a century old. Mass 
Mutual has a large number of repre- 
sentatives throughout the United States 
who work much as I do. And believe 
me, this Company is equipped to pro- 
vide us with appropriate back-up . . . 

both contracts and services to meet the 
demands of our growing market."

ment you would enjoy . . . why not

A personal Apostolate 

Rev. Edward S. Stanton, S.J., '38 

UOR some years now all the faithful have been saying 
public prayers for vocations. Most have thought only of 
priestly and religious vocations. I think the day has come 
when we need to offer prayers for lay vocations, that more 
Catholic laymen may develop a real sense of responsibility 
to undertake the Church's mission in the modern world. 

And we are not talking here about the vocation to "give 
good example," helpful though this is. It was Pius XI who 
said, "At the present time the personal apostolate is not 
enough, if indeed it ever was enough." Rather there is ques- 
tion here of the involvement of Catholic laymen in the 
Church's organized apostolate. Only through such an ap- 
proach can Catholic laymen gain access to, and bring a 
Christian influence to bear on the highly complex and 
sophisticated structures of contemporary society. 


J HE world has undergone many revolutions — the in- 
dustrial and cybernetic, to mention only two — quite inde- 
pendently of the Church's influence. And now the Church 
is trying to "catch up" on this world. That is why the tone 
of Vatican Council II was essentially pastoral; the Council 
concerned itself more with practical than with theoretical 
problems; its longest and, in the estimation of many, its 

most significant document is entitled: "A Pastoral Consti- 
tution on the Church in the Modern World." 

This Council can be considered either to have simply 
come and gone or to have ended — only in the sense that its 
closing marked the opening of a new era. The latter posi- 
tion is supported by all those who have the time to read 
the conciliar texts. If the Church is to become relevant to 
the modern world this will be brought about when more 
of the laity join the clergy in assuming co-responsibility 
for the Church's ministry to the world. In fact, if laymen 
do not assume their proper role, which Christ Himself as- 
signed them at the time of their baptism, all the other 
efforts of the Church will prove futile. This role is clearly 
set forth in the Council's Decree on the Apostolate of the 

Until recently laymen may have thought they had an 
option to become involved in the Church's mission or sim- 
ply "to save their own souls." Now this is no longer pos- 
sible, for, as this document clearly indicates, "The Chris- 
tian vocation by its very nature is a vocation to the apos- 
tolate. No part of the structure of a living body is merely 
passive but has a share in the junctions as well as the life 
of the body . . . and that member who fails to make his 
proper contribution to the development of the Church must 
be said to be useful neither to the Church nor to himself." 

For several centuries the clergy has been considered the 
active element in the Church and laymen, for the most 
part, have been passive. This is an unfortunate distinction. 

It has led to tensions and misunderstandings especially in 
those parts of the world where laymen have acquired a 
superior education. As every priest knows, in rectories across 
the country the question is often raised, "Where are all 
those well-trained Catholic college graduates?" On the 
other hand, when alert and concerned Catholic laymen get 
together they frequently express their resentment that too 
many priests evince a paternalistic attitude in their regard. 
All too few priests, they say, recognize laymen's competen- 
cies. Too few priests show a readiness to play their small 
but very significant part in carrying out tasks which laymen 
initiate. Priests could help laymen carry out their tasks in 
the temporal order by offering them more spiritual direc- 
tion, intellectual guidance and apostolic formation. More 
and more thoughtful laymen are looking for postgraduate 
training in Catholic thinking and living — training that is 
adapted to professional people, many of whom are products 
of sixteen years of Catholic schooling. 


this brief article to present a "pat" solution. But since the 
author has spent the greater part of the past ten years work- 
ing with small teams of priests and laymen, he has been 
asked to describe (even prescribe) one formula which has 
proved quite successful. 

What follows is a sketchy account of the Christian Action 
Movement. In the Boston area alone over one hundred men 
have accepted an invitation to join one of these small Chris- 
tian communities. For the most part, they are college and 
university graduates. The groups collectively comprise the 
Christian Action Movement. This Movement is now be- 
ginning to spread in other parts of the country. 

They gather each week for meetings in a private home. 
The meeting never lasts longer than an hour and a quarter. 
It begins on time and ends on time. Some groups meet in 
the evening; some after Mass on Saturday or Sunday morn- 
ing. Men who have all sorts of commitments to their fam- 
ilies, and professions readily submit themselves to the tight 
discipline of the weekly meeting format. 

There are three parts to the meeting: 1) a group medi- 
tation on some passage from the Bible; 2) "routine action;" 
and 3) the development of a specific apostolate to society. 

Each one comes to the meeting, having prepared himself 
to share with the others those insights into the Christian 
message that he has gained from his own private reflections 
and from the latest commentaries on the Bible. Attentively 
listening to, and openly discussing God's Word these men 
are formed as His People. While at the beginning this at- 
tempt at intimate sharing is apt to be slightly awkward, 
after three or four meetings they become aware of the 
fraternal atmosphere that surrounds them as they respond 
to the lessons the Lord Jesus is teaching His Church today. 

Towards the end of this communal prayer each one pro- 
poses a resolution for the following week. Then they joint- 
ly settle on that resolution which they feel will best enable 
them to live the Christian life more fully. 

Where the first part of the meeting is for the members' 
spiritual formation, the second part, "routine action," is di- 
rected toward their intellectual growth. 

The members report on the activities and the trends that 
are developing in their professional societies or trade associa- 
tions. They call to one another's attention worthwhile books 
and articles from the secular and religious press and, in 
general, try to keep abreast of current issues that affect the: 
life of ecclesial, civic, state and national societies. "Totally 
immersed in the secular world and its activities," as the: 
Decree on the Apostolate of the Laity says they should be, 
they realize the need of constant intellectual stimulation; 

J HIS problem is multi-faceted; it has a long history; it 
will not be solved easily; nor will any effort be made in 

in order that they may serve "as a yeast in the secular order" 
and "permeate it with the Christian spirit." 

The third part of the meeting serves to train them, by 
involving them, in apostolic activities. Let me give a few 
examples. A few months ago, the Massachusetts Supreme 
Court rendered a decision which provides for a more equi- 
table distribution of property-tax responsibilities. From this 
point forward, thousands of home owners throughout the 
State, especially those with young children, will be able to 
provide somewhat more adequately for their children's 
education — because the men in one Christian Action group 
spent, literally, hundreds of hours in arousing public opin- 
ion in their town and in presenting their case to the courts. 

Another group recently set up a non-profit corporation, 
bought 66 acres of valuable property near a lake and are 
well on their way to obtain from the U.S. Government 
$880,000 for the construction of an extended care unit. This 
they are doing under clause 221 D3 of the Federal Housing 
Act. Instead of having federal funds for the "great society" 
administered by gray-coated agents of Uncle Sam, these 
men want to provide for the sick and the aged warmer and 
more personal service in a Christian nursing home. 


NOTHER group recognized that the racial problems 
of Roxbury are the responsibility of all citizens in metro- 
politan Boston, and set up a Fair Housing Committee in 
their suburb. They faced considerable embarrassment, and 

even harassment, in the process. They were surprised, for 
instance, to discover how many otherwise well-educated 
Catholics have responded, not creatively but negatively, to 
this problem whose solution will be arrived at only when 
more informed and dedicated Christians become directly 
and personally engaged in serving God's poor. 

In every apostolic undertaking Christian Action men 
choose that area of the apostolate where they think their 
talents can best serve the public interest. In approaching 
each problem they follow the SEE-JUDGE-ACT method 
which Pope John highly recommended in his encyclical, 
Mater et Magistra. 

Members of Christian Action groups hail from Columbia, 
Harvard, Stanford, Georgetown, Holy Cross, as well as 
from Boston College. They are doctors, lawyers, teachers, 
physicists, business and tradesmen. The spiritual advisers of 
the groups are Augustinians, Capuchins, Carmelites, dio- 
cesan priests, and Jesuits. 

Each group enjoys an autonomy of its own. Yet each is 
bound to the others notably by way of a monthly News- 
letter, a monthly evening of recollection, and an annual 
retreat. The members of each group gradually introduce 
themselves to a daily set of spiritual exercises which is set 
forth in the Christian Action handbook. Perfect fulfillment 
of the demands of this program does not come easily. But 
they all are making serious efforts to live richer Christian 
lives. In fact, they are members of their groups precisely 
because they became dissatisfied with their previously spo- 
radic efforts to grow in the ways of Christian holiness and 
because they were not completely content with many other 
fraternal and religious organizations to wihch they did, or 
did not, belong. 

What they are finding in this new movement is perhaps 
a new sense of their lay vocation, particularly in the 
Church's mission to the modern world. In that area the 
college graduate's concern, competence and courage are in- 
dispensable. And the fields for harvest are much whiter 
than most people dare realize. 


RIGHT OF dissent 

Thomas H. O'Connor, '49 
Chairman, History Department 

J. HE right of dissent is a real and 
universal problem which is as old as 
mankind itself — a problem with which 
Sophocles concerned himself centuries 
ago in his Antigone — the question of the 
right of the individual citizen to public- 
ly express his own ideas of right and 
wrong even though they may be in 
conflict with the prevailing rule of law 
under which he lives. This has been an 
integral part of the struggle to main- 
tain a working democracy during the 
history of the United States and, as cur- 
rent newspapers and magazines clearly 
indicate, it has taken on even greater 
significance at the present time. 

In the light of the fact that much of 
the history of the American people ap- 
pears to be the history of public dissent 
— starting with the American Revolu- 
tion itself, and going on Revolution it- 
self, and going on to such developments 
as the Virginia and Kentucky Resolu- 
tions, the doctrine of Nullification, the 
Populist Movement, the Progressive 
Movement, and so many other chal- 
lenges and protests against the existing 
order — one may ask what there is about 
the current wave of dissent which has 
so greatly alarmed so many people and 
which has raised the spectre of national 
disintegration. Is there anything which 
might be considered especially unique 
or distinctive about the present protest 
movements, or are they such another 
up-dated version of past complaints? 

There appear to be at least two major 
factors which distinguish current de- 
velopments as distinctive — one of which 
is concerned with the nature of the 
movement itself, and the other which 
concerns the circumstances in which 
this movement is taking place: 

First, the most striking characteristic 
about the current movement of dissent 
is what might be called its "universal- 
ity" — in time, in place, and in theory. 
Geographically, for example, as a result 
of the modern mass media of com- 
munication — radio, television, motion 
pictures, newspapers, magazines, pam- 
phlets, and mimeograph machines — 
this is something which has not been 
confined to any one region, state, or 
campus, but something which has af- 
fected the entire nation all the way from 
Berkeley to Boston. We have had, in 
the past, numerous examples of states 
and regions which have publicly op- 
posed the policies of the national gov- 
ernment, particularly in terms of for- 
eign policy, war, and peace. The firm 
opposition of the New England states 
to the War of 1812, and the violent dis- 
sent of these same New England states 
against the War with Mexico in 1846 
may be seen as early examples of reac- 
tion against national policy which was 
essentially isolated and disorganized ex- 
cept within local or regional limits. And 
one might, for another example, make 
an interesting comparison between the 
limited regional success of the Abolition 
movement of the 19th century, and the 
national success of the 20th century 
Civil Rights movement through the use 
of modern communication techniques. 

/\NOTHER feature of the "univer- 
sality" of the current wave of dissent is 
the fact that it is no longer limited to 
the personal and highly individualized 
leadership of such figures as John Ran- 
dolph, William Lloyd Garrison, John C. 
Calhoun, Henry David Thoreau, Rob- 

ert LaFollette, Henry Wallace, or any 
of those other figures who have been 
clearly classified as "the voice" of this 
particular movement or that. At the 
present time it is almost impossible 
isolate a single leader or a typically 
unique personality among the hundred: 
and thousands who have joined their 
voices and their talents toward working 
for the success of their particular ob- 
jective. At least in its organizational 
form, a type of anonymity has appeared 
to have replaced the highly personalized 
leadership which characterized so many 
reform movements of the past. 

And a third way in which this "urn 
versality" can be seen is in the broad 
range of activities in which the parti- 
cipants engage. Atomic energy, the hy- 
drogen bomb, school lunches, insecti- 
cides, fluoridation, Vietnam, Cuba, the 
draft, civil rights, fair housing, urban 
renewal, depressed areas — there is vir 
tually no major area of political, eco- 
nomic, or social concern which has not 
come under the vocal criticism of thej 
dissenters. Perhaps not since the reform 
movements of the mid-19th century has 
the nation seen such outpouring of re- 
form activity which encompassed sc 
many and so varied aspects of American 
life and society. 

The other outstanding feature which 
is of historical interest, is the fact that 
this wave of reform activity and public 
dissent, so universal in its appearance 
and application, is taking place at al 
time in our national history when — for' 
good or for bad — many of the tradi- 
tional and external restraints which 
have served to minimize, jeopardize, or 
paralyze such movements in the past 
are no longer operative. 

In recent years it has become evident 
that judicial restraints, administrative 
regulations, parental restrictions, social 
deterrents, and political sanctions have 
gradually diminished to the point where 
some social critics question whether they 
are functioning at all. At a time when 
freedom in the land has become almost 
total, this means that in the absence of 
external forces of direction, supervision, 
and regulation, the greatest degree of 
responsibility will rest with the indi- 
vidual American himself. In the free- 
dom of a democracy which makes it 
possible for all kinds of thoughts, ideas, 
and publications to be broadcast widely 
— virtually without let or without hin- 
drance — the future responsibility of the 
democracy will lie in the necessity of 
every one of its citizens having the in- 
telligence and the training to separate 
the true from the false, to distinguish 
sense from nonsense. 

In short, what we refer to as the 
"Public Welfare" will depend, more 
than ever before, in the reasoning 
power, the sound judgment, and the 
maturity of its future citizens. Not just 
a few — not an aristocratic elite, not a 
favored oligarchy — but all the citizens 
who are prepared to assume a respon- 
sible role in the future of their nation. 
There will be some, I am sure, who 
never emerge from the welter of con- 
flicting ideas to formulate responsible 
values and ideals and to take a mean- 
ngful part in the life of America. These 
will forever remain our intellectual 
Peter Pans eternally humming the 
strains of "I don't want to grow up. I 
don't want to grow up!" But there will 
Ik be a far greater percentage of tomor- 
m row's citizens, having gone through the 
long and sometimes painful processes of 
o grappling with ideas, committing them- 
nl selves to certain programs, and taking 
reasonable issue with others who will 
i emerge as more intelligent and respon- 
sible citizens who are even more com- 
mitted to the ideals of America. This 
will not be in accordance with any for- 
mula which has been imposed upon 
them from without, but in keeping with 
their own patient and thoughtful views 
of what has already been accomplished 
under the Democratic system and yet 
fully aware of the numerous challenges 
which lie ahead of them. 

The prospect is both frightening and 
exhilarating— and the role of the teach- 
d er, the educator, and the student is more 
decisive than ever before in our history. 
As what might be termed as the "of- 
ficial" interpreters of morals, values, and 

policies experience a decline in their 
traditional authority, much greater em- 
phasis must be placed not only upon 
the development of factual knowledge 
and the accumulation of data, but upon 
those critical faculties which are neces- 
sary for deriving from the facts and the 
data valid judgments, thoughtful inter- 
pretations, and meaningful values for 
the present and for the future. 

IN considering how much latitude 
should be given to those who expressed 
open disapproval of governmental pol- 
icies and constitutional opinions, Thom- 
as Jefferson said: "If there be any 
among us who would wish to dissolve 
this Union or to change its republican 
forms, let them stand undisturbed as 
monuments of the safety with which 
error of opinion may be tolerated where 
reason is left free to combat it." Here, 
eloquently and succinctly expressed, is 
emphasized not merely the right of free 
expression and dissent, but of the equal- 
ly serious duty and responsibility of 
citizens to come to grips with these ideas 
intelligently, reasonably, and tolerantly. 
The factor of reasonable tolerance, too, 
was a note which Jefferson greatly em- 
phasized in speaking of the importance 
of open controversy in the United States. 
While party labels and organizational 
badges may be necessary as a means of 
dramatizing political differences or 
ideological beliefs, Jefferson urged that 
such labels should not obscure the over- 
riding fact that most Americans have 
the same good end in view. We must 
not become so emotionally involved in 
dissent and disagreement that we begin 
to accuse our neighbor of treason or 
treachery just because he holds opinions 
which differ from our own. "Let us re- 
flect," said Jefferson, "that having ban- 
ished from our land that religious in- 

tolerance under which mankind so long 
bled and suffered, we have yet gained 
little if we countenance a political in- 
tolerance as despotic, as wicked, and 
capable of as bitter and bloody persecu- 
tions." "Let us restore to social inter- 
course," he pleaded, "that harmony and 
affection without which liberty and 
even life itself are but dreary things." 

It is not without serious reflection 
that Jefferson added the elements of 
harmony and affection to the virtues of 
reason and tolerance in dealing with 
those ideas and movements with which 
we may not be in agreement and which, 
in fact, we may feel are at serious odds 
with the prevailing climate of opinion. 
In many ways this sense of harmony 
and this spirit of affection may be even 
more essential in overcoming those per- 
sonal and psychological obstacles to true 
dialogue and understanding than the 
actual facts themselves. 

Few of us, I am sure, would be at all 
hesitant in demanding freedom of dis- 
sent for those ideas which we ourselves 
favor and support — ideas which we are 
fully convinced are true and good and 
lasting. But are we equally enthusiastic 
in supporting the individual rights and 
personal liberties of those who advocate 
ideas with which we may not agree? 

Most spokesmen for dissent — at least 
viewed in historical perspective — are 
not always lovable people — in fact, very 
often they are not really very likable. 
Concentrating fanatically upon their re- 
forms, sincerely and conscientiously ab- 
sorbed in their programs, utterly devoid 
of humor or light-heartedness where 
their cherished principles are concerned, 
they are much more apt to repel than 
to attract. As a result, it becomes much 
easier for us all to dismiss or to disre- 

gard various conflicting views and ideas 
— not so much because of any intrinsic 
merits or demerits in the ideas them- 
selves but because of the personal atti- 
tudes and characteristics of those who 
are presenting them. This is not only 
in conflict with harmony and affection, 
but immediately rules out anything like 
a rational and objective approach to- 
ward ideas which may be of significant 


' E must be prepared to analyze and 
discuss conflicting ideologies on their 
own merits, rather than to dismiss them 
out of hand, sight unseen, because they 
have been offered by persons whom we 
regard as crackpots, cranks, beatniks, 
rebels, or agitators. It may well be that 
an idea turns out to be as useless as the 
one who presents it, but this should be 
determined after a careful examination 
of the idea — and not predetermined by 
the color of a person's skin or the length 
of a person's haircut. 

And if dissent should reach the point 
where its methods and manifestations 

disturb the public order, seriously en- 
dangers the rights of others, or contra- 
venes the existing laws, it should be left 
to the legally constituted authorities to 
determine the offense and to mete out 
the punishment. The public interest is 
never served by the type of hoodlum- 
ism, vigilante tactics, or mob violence 
which denies in fact the very concept 
of civilized authority which it claims to 

If a nation insists on absolute free- 
dom without sufficient responsibility, 
or demands complete liberty without 
adequate guarantees of authority, the 
result might well be unbridled chaos 
and anarchy. If, on the other hand, a 
government sets national authority 
above the rights of its people, or dic- 
tates controls at the expense of personal 
liberties, the result will inevitably be a 
dictatorship. The pages of history are 
filled with the stories of nations which 
have either ended up in the straight- 
jacket of totalitarianism or which have 
floundered aimlessly in the limbo of lost 
republics, drifting from one hopeless 
revolution to another. 

A true democratic government is an 
extremely difficult goal to achieve, and 
an even more difficult goal to maintain, 
because it involves a constant balance 
between the forces of liberty and author- 
ity — freedom and responsibility. De- 
mocracy is not something which a na- 
tion obtains and then keeps in some 
kind of petrified form forever after. On 
the contrary, democracy is something 
which a nation achieves and which fu- 
ture generations work and struggle to 
maintain. It requires not only eternal 
vigilance, but continual care, serious 
study, frequent change, and occasional 
reform. A democracy is the attempt by 
the people to attain that delicate balance 
between liberty and authority, so that 
liberty will never become license and 
authority will never become dictator- 

There are, obviously, certain factors 
which determine how the delicate and 
ever-changing balance between freedom 
and responsibility is to be maintained, 
but one of the most important of these 
elements will have to be the spirit of 
the people themselves. If the people of 
a nation can develop a vigorous na- 
tional pride without becoming bom- 
bastic, if they can maintain a strong 
pride in their accomplishments without 
becoming overbearing, if they preserve 
a deep sense of their heritage without 
becoming antiquarian, if they can in- 
voke constructive criticism without los- 
ing sight of the years of toil and sacri- 
fice which went into the attainment of 
what they have already achieved — then 
the tolerant spirit and responsible intel- 
ligence of such a people may well be 
one of the most important factors in 
keeping liberty and authority in their 
proper relationship. 




E cannot all live in cities, yet near- 
ly all seemed determined to do so," said 
Horace Greely. 

With this statement he brought into 
focus the challenge of the twentieth cen- 
tury. The shift from an agrarian to an 
ndustrial society has made nearly 
eighty percent of our population city 
dwellers. Air pollution, traffic conges- 
tion, over crowded and substandard 
housing, unemployment, delinquency, 
and inadequate school programs are 
only a few of the elements that an urban 
Pandora has bequeathed us. 

This summer Boston College has 
taken the first steps toward the develop- 
ment of a department of urban educa- 

tion. This beginning took the form of 
two new programs — Upward Bound 
and the National Teacher Corps. Both 
programs operated on an intensive basis 
on campus throughout the summer ses- 
sion and Upward Bound will continue 
through the academic year. 

It is generally acknowledged that the 
inner city schools are in trouble, 
throughout the country, the economi- 
cally advantaged have migrated to the 
suburbs leaving our cities with a dwin- 
dling tax base to support city schools. 
Often the school enrollment increases 
despite the decrease in adult population 
because remaining families have more 
children. Thus the schools are left with 

by Irene M. McInnis 

the dilemma of more students and less 
money to spend per student. 

The principals and teachers are the 
people who really feel the brunt of these 
problems while carrying the burden of 
the daily school operation. As they at- 
tempt to provide quality education for 
each child who comes to school, they 
face deteriorating buildings, shortages 
in teaching materials, inadequate funds 
for audio-visual equipment, and a lim- 
ited number of teachers applying each 
year because of the desirable teaching 
conditions in the suburban schools. 

X HIS situation is not unique to the 
public schools. Inner city pastors find 

that the amount of money collected on 
Sunday morning is far less than they 
need to operate the type of school pro- 
gram their children require. Frequent- 
ly home problems which affect the 
child's classroom achievement cannot be 
dealt with as there are no funds for ob- 
taining social workers and psychologists 
to work with the family and child. Bos- 
ton's Operation Headstart found thirty 
percent of the three to five-year-olds en- 
rolled had some emotional or physical 
illness serious enough to warrant imme- 
diate attention. Cases of tuberculosis, 
congenital heart disease, and severe psy- 
chosis were identified and treated. 

What begins to become apparent as 
one compares the urban and suburban 
school is a growing gap in the quality 
of education offered. Even the most 
dedicated ad competent urban school 
teacher has difficulty competing with 
the suburban school program with the 
higher per pupil expenditures. A na- 
tional awareness of the long term con- 
sequences of this gap has brought about 
legislation at both the federal and state 
levels, designed to alleviate the pressures 
on the urban school. The Elementary 
and Secondary Education Act, the 
Higher Education Act and the Eco- 
nomic Opportunity Act are examples 
of federal legislation and the Harring- 
ton-Willis Act is an example of state 
legislation here in Massachusetts. 

Much has been written about the Na- 
tional Teacher Corps, since separate 
proposals were introduced by Senators 
Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts 
and Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin. Ba- 
sically, they both proposed the estab- 
lishment of a corps of persons who 

would enter rural and urban school sys- 
tems, extending school services and 
lending their talents and energies to the 
education of the disadvantaged child. 
From the start it was a controversial 
piece of legislation. Many congressmen 
raised questions about the issues of fed- 
eral vs. local control of education, im- 
plicit in the act. Even after the act 
passed, it appeared that the Congress 
would not allow the Corps to become 
an actuality as they withheld funds for 
operation. At last funding for the Corps 
became available and university centers 
for training corpsmen opened through- 
out the countrv. 


N :he Boston College Campus, 
twenty-eight corpsmen attended a pre- 
service training program this summer. 
It is anticipated that they will go into 
the Lowell and Boston Public Schools 
in September, continuing their training 
through an in-service program. They 
will enter these school systems in teams, 
consisting of one experienced teacher 
and interns, who are college graduates 
but have no formal training in educa- 
tion. The corpsmen will not supplant 
the teachers but will allow the school 
to reach out in directions that were pre- 
viously impossible. During school 
hours, they will conduct remedial read- 
ing, math and science programs. After 
school they will develop and conduct 
school-related programs in the com- 

The director and assistant director of 
the program. Dr. William Griffin and 
Dr. Mary Griffin, said there were three 
components to the pre-service phase of 
the program. First the corpsmen parti- 


cipated in an intensive two week semi- 
nar on inner city problems. Also the> 
experienced life in an urban area by 
working closely with people who know 
the community. Finally, they attended 
an intensive training workshop on the 
use of teaching materials which have 
been constructed for the inner city child. 

The corpsmen represent a range of 
talent and experience. They hail from 
such places as California. Texas, Penn- 
sylvania. New York. North Carolina 
and most of the New England states. 
Some are recent college graduates and 
others not so recent. The one character- 
istic they hold in common is a com- 
mitment to education: particularly toi 
urban education where they see a great: 
need. Their community experiences this- 
summer have taken them to the Al- 
liance of Cambridge Settlement Houses, 
the Roxbury Multi-Service Center, the- 
North End Community Action Pro- 
gram, the South End Youth Oppor- 
tunity Center, the Elizabeth Peabody 
House and Playroom 81 for four weeks 
and to the many summer programs, 
conducted by the Boston Public Schools 
for an additional two weeks. To watch 
one of the corpsmen assist a teacher 
demonstrating how to determine the 
mass of a cube to a class, is to gain in- 
sight into the valuable contribution 
these dedicated people will make to the 
school systems and children they serve. 

While the National Teacher Corps I 
brought teachers and interns on campus 
for a ten week pre-service training pro- 
gram, Upward Bound brought tenth ' 
and eleventh grade students on campus || 
for an eight week education program. 
The director of this program. Ulysses 
Grant Shelton, has stated that Upwan 
Bound, ". . . was designed to make ad- 
mission to institutions of higher learn- 
ing possible for its participants. The 
basic qualifications for success in col- 
lege center around the ability to be ar- 
ticulate, to possess a basic fund of knowl- 
edge, to be emotionally balanced and to 
have a high level of aspiration. We feel 
that this project contributes to the de- 
velopment of these qualifications in its 
attempt to enhance both motivation 
and capacity for learning." 

To achieve these goals, ninety stu- 
dents were selected principally from 
Boston English High School, Charleston 
High School, Boston Technical High 
School, and St. Joseph Academy fo 
Girls. These students are capable young 
men and women who either felt thev 

would never be accepted into a college 
or who lacked some of the skills re- 
quired for college admission. To make 
college admission a reality for these 
students, Boston College is committed 
to accept qualified students from the 
Upward Bound Project. In the event 
that there remains a lingering academic 
deficiency that might militate against 
the usual college admission, a pre-col- 
lege admission tutorial program will be 
initiated. Following admission a candi- 
date may take part in the tutorial pro- 
gram currently carried on by students 
in the Honors Program and Sodality. 

The theme of the campus summer 
program was "The Complexities of 
Urban Society." This was an interest- 
ing topic for the students who have 
grown up in city neighborhoods. Thus 
their remedial reading, speech, English, 
math and social science classes had 
greater relevance since they were based 
upon real experiences. The content of 
the courses was further bolstered by 
field trips to hospitals, social service 
agencies, libraries and museums. 

There was a wide range of reading 
ability represented in the student groups 
but through the use of EDL controlled 
readers, tachistoscopes, developmental 
reading materials and the Boston Globe 
for current issues, the students have 
been improving their reading rate and 
comprehension. Mr. Morton Weinert, 
the Chairman of the Boston Latin 
School Math Department brought fresh 
insights into the world of modern math; 
introducing negative and positive in- 
tegers, the number line and a geometry 
with the terms point, line and plane un- 
defined. It was not an easy summer for 
these students. 

To avoid an "all work and no play" 
program, recreational activities were 
made possible through art and music 

classes, campus sports facilities, and pro- 
grams conducted for families and 

An example of a program conducted 
for and by Upward Bound students was 
the Field Day held on campus July 30th. 
Upward Bound Students from Tufts, 
Harvard and Boston University joined 
the Boston College group for an after- 
noon and evening of sports, speeches, 
and socializing. National Upward 
Bound Director, Richard T. Frost and 
Executive Secretary to Sargent Shriver. 
James M. Harkless were among the 
many visiting parents and friends. 

XjlLL in all, it was a good summer 
for these students but what happens in 
the Fall when they return to their high 
schools? Will they now desire to go on 
to college and expend greater effort and 
time to attain the better grades needed 
for college entrance? These are ques- 
tions that cannot be answered for the 
moment. Thirty tutors will be assisting 
these students throughout the school 
year and it is hoped that this tutorial 
program will help them over some of 
the rough spots. 

In conclusion it is worthwhile recall- 
ing that education is a relatively new 
field which began with the contribu- 
tions made in the early 1900's. Educa- 
tion with the assistance of the other so- 
cial sciences has come to recognize the 
gifted, the mentally retarded, the emo- 
tionally disturbed, the disadvantaged, 
the academically talented, the delin- 
quent, the creative, and a number of 
other groups which may be found in 
any classroom; each requiring special 
educational assistance if they are to be 
taught all they can master. Equal op- 
portunity cannot mean that everyone 
gets the same regimen, some need more 
help to reach levels readily achieved by 
others. Although we have believed that 
an educated populace is essential to the 
functioning of a democracy, we are only 
just beginning to understand the ener- 
gies and resources which must be har- 
nessed to make this great national ex- 
periment work. The experiment of 'ed- 
ucation for all' may become this coun- 
try's real contribution to world civiliza- 

But to whom does the task of this 
experiment fall? Keppel has said, "Ed- 
ucation is too important to be left sole- 
ly to the educators." If he means that 


all of us as parents or as citizens must 
be concerned about the education of to- 
morrow's adults, then he is right. How- 
ever, in the last analysis the respon- 
sibility for educational change rests with 
the educators. In an age where it takes 
years to master a field and a life time 
of reading to keep up with new develop- 
ments in that field, we do well to re- 
main competent in our own specialty. 
At best we can look with understand- 
ing and support to educators and be 
critical only if it becomes apparent that 
they are not accepting the challenges of 
the age. Boston College has accepted 
the challenge of urban education; a 
challenge which must be met if our 
children are to continue to live in and 
cope with a world which has become 
and will continue to become increasing- 
ly complex. A complex world is also a

world where people are greatly depen- 
dent upon one another and in such an

second-class citizenship.

ment to all.

A Community Responsibility 

lN THE lobby of the Department 
of Commerce at Washington is an elec- 
tric chart-counter which illustrates the 
dramatic growth of our national popula- 

A child is born every 7 1 / 2 seconds, 
some one dies every 17 seconds, an im- 
migrant enters the country every V/ 2 
minutes. A net gain of one is indicated 
by a white light in the center of the 
chart which flashes inexorably every 12 
seconds 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. 

At the top center of the exhibit an 
electrically operated counter, like the 
mileage meter of an automobile, pre- 
sents a cumulative total which shows 
the estimated total population of the 
United States at a given moment and 
acts as a "scoreboard" enabling the 
viewer to watch the rate of growth. 

As of September 1 this year the num- 
ber had passed 197,000,000 — an increase 
of nearly 18,000,000 since the last na- 
tional census hardly six years ago. The 
total will easily reach 200,000,000 before 
the end of 1967, some 50,000,000 more 
than in 1950. 

Such a phenomenal growth in such a 
short period of time can cause immense 
problems, particularly in urban areas. 
More and more persons have been added 
to cities, taxing the capacity of existing 
institutions. Business and industry 
must adjust to new and constantly 
changing situations to suit shifting 
needs. In a land of material plenty, vast 
numbers of Americans suffer poverty 
and unemployment and live in slum 
conditions. Countless thousands are 
victims of mental illness, of delinquen- 
cy, of crime. The disruption of family 
life has reached alarming proportions. 

As established institutions become 
less and less able to meet the demands 
of a rapidly growing population, the 

ability to forecast the effects of man's 
actions upon his natural and social en- 
vironment becomes increasingly vital 
to the well-being of society. Particular- 
ly urgent is the need to develop new 
techniques for gaining deeper under- 
standing of psychological and social re- 
lationships within the living commun- 
ity and its physical environment. Equal- 
ly important, new methods for putting 
such knowledge to immediate use are 
needed in order to alleviate the physical 
and psychological deprivation suffered 
by a large part of the population, espe- 
cially in cities. A massive, concerted ef- 
fort within the natural, behavioral, eco- 
nomic, political, and social sciences is 

To assist in this effort, Boston Col- 
lege will begin soon at the Chestnut 
Hill campus the construction of a Cen- 
ter for the Social Sciences. 

The building will be erected at the 
south end of the campus just inside the 
main gate at Beacon Street opposite and 
west of Campion Hall, the School of 
Education, and on the roadway run- 
ning from Beacon Street to Gasson 

The five-story center will have a to- 
tal area of some 144,000 square feet, a 
height of 70 feet, and will be 296 feet 
long. The new building will be con- 
structed on the space occupied by the 
"temporary" wooden barrack-type 
buildings since World War Two and 
used for the past several years for re- 
search laboratories and student activi- 

The School of Social Work will move 
from its longtime downtown Boston lo- 
cation to the new facility. The depart- 
ments of psychology and sociology will 
take up quarters in the Center, and there 
will be facilities for special research pro- 

grams of the department of education, 
for the educational testing services of 
the University, and for guidance coun- 
selling services. 

The Center will have two general 
goals : 

1. The generation of intensive, large- 
scale research investigations into 
some of the contemporary critical 
issues concerning human behavior, 
social organizations, and social and 
psychological problems in urban 

2. The expansion of services for deal- 
ing with psychological, social, 
health, and welfare problems. 

Boston College will commit a large 
measure of its scholarly resources to re- 
search in the social sciences because Bos- 
ton College believes that the urban uni- 
versity has a very special responsibility 
to the community in which it lives and 
must be ready and willing to cooperate 
with that community in matters of com- 
mon concern. 

To that end Boston College estab- 
lished in 1964 the Institute of Human 
Sciences, itself a research center de- 
voted to the broad problems of psycho- 
logical and social functioning and mal- 
functioning in the modern urban en- 

The Institute, which now comprises 
seven distinguished social scientists, is 
particularly concerned with a number 
of special areas in which such problems 
have already manifested themselves. 
Some of these are: 

1. Poverty, its causes and consequen- 
ces, and their relationship to social 
class in America. 

2. Contemporary urban development 
and its relationship to urban re- 
newal and urban planning. 

3. Drastic social changes and crises, 
their sources, and their impact 
upon individual persons and 

4. Processes of human development 
and learning in preparation for the 
diverse and rapidly changing ex- 
pectations in modern society. 

5. Group processes, intergroup rela- 
tions, and their potential for gen- 
erating conflict or cooperation. 

6. Ethnic discrimination and isola- 
tion and their effects upon social 
mobility and personal achievement. 

7. Effects of social background, so- 
cial status, and social competence 
upon the development and form of 
human behavior. 

8. Patterns, causes, and consequences 
of such contemporary psycho-so- 
cial ills as mental disorder, family 
disruption, delinquency, and crime. 

These themes are not only central to 
the research objectives of the Institute 
of Human Sciences but they also pro- 
vide a base for policy and program ac- 
tivities linking Institute research to the 
School of Social Work, the School of 
Education, and the School of Law, as 
well as to the formal social science de- 
partments of psychology and sociology. 

Members of all social science depart- 
ments will be encouraged and expected 
to participate in and contribute to In- 
stitute research projects. The depart- 
ments of psychology and sociology will 
undertake studies in social or group 
dynamics, nearly all of their clinical 
work within the Greater Boston area. 
Scholars at the School of Social Work 
and the department of education will 
offer their special talents in counsel- 
ling, testing, and other areas relevant to 
their respective disciplines. 

To buttress the research activity the 
faculty will be markedly strengthened. 
The department of sociology, with three 
new members this year, now has nine 
persons; the objectives by 1970 is fifteen. 
The department of psychology now has 
thirteen members, a sharp increase over 
last year. The department intends to 
have twenty members by 1970. The 
School of Social Work has recently 
added five additional faculty for a total 
today of twenty-six. The School anti- 
cipates thirty-six persons on its faculty 
by 1970. All of the above-mentioned are 
and will be full-time members of the 
University faculty. 

It will be a basic premise of scholars 
within the Center for the Social Sci- 
ences at Boston College that research is 
primarily valuable insofar as it is 

The Center for Social S 

oriented to the processes, situations, and 
problems of major contemporary sig- 
nificance. There must be a consistent 
interplay between basic and applied 
problems. The practice professions, 
such as social work, education, law, and 
psychology, provide much of the im- 
petus and background for this research; 
and they in turn can benefit materially 
from the advances produced by system- 
atic study of underlying processes and 

The training of advanced students in 
psychology and sociology (a doctoral 
program in psychology, by the way, was 
established this year) will emphasize the 
importance of research which is mean- 
ingful and relevant to the nature of man 
rather than sterile exercises in logical 
and statistical techniques for their own 
sake. The research area sequence for 
advanced students will be closely asso- 
ciated with the realities of complex 
community life. Problems, illustrations, 
and techniques will relate to social be- 
havior as it actually exists. 

Subjects now under active considera- 
tion as special projects for the Institute 
of Human Sciences include: 

1. Social planning and social policy — 
e.g. urban renewal, employment 
training, economic factors relating 
to delinquency and crime. 

2. Concepts of public education — re- 
formation of the educational sys- 
tem to take account of contempo- 
rary needs of urban, industrial so- 

3. Economic, social, and psychological 
causes and effects of poverty. 

4. Economic, social, and psychological 
causes and effects of racial and 
ethnic isolation. 


5. Through analysis of existing sta- 
tistical data, investigation of the 
specific causal factors leading to 
psychiatric pathology. 

The Institute will continue to expand 
its interdisciplinary effort by bringing 
in additional faculty from other fields: 
economics, political science, history, and 
anthropology, for example — as well as 
psychology and sociology. The intent is 
not simply to achieve representation, 
but rather to make available to all 
scholars within the Center the methods, 
orientation, and specialized approaches 
of related fields of study in order to 
bring all possible resources to bear upon 
the alleviation of pressing social ills. 

Nearly all of the anticipated projects 
of the Institute will be financed through 
grants from educational, research, and 
charitable foundations and from state 
and federal governments. Distinguished 
social scientists and scholars will be en- 
couraged to bring prospective research 
projects to the Institute and to become 
affiliated with the Institute during 
their period of study. 

Understanding a problem is the first 
step towards its solution. Boston College 
believes that only through a massive re- 
search effort in cooperation with other 
responsible persons and agencies can we 
begin to understand the complex prob- 
lems within our complex society. Bos- 
ton College believes, too, that the inter- 
disciplinary approach — the pooling of 
knowledge, techniques, and profes- 
sional skills — by scholars and scien- 
tists will enable the Center for the So- 
cial Sciences to make a significant break- 
through towards the solution of some 
of those problems.

\\ ATCH out, there's a "cultural explosion" going on 
around you!! From Symphony Hall to the Los Angeles' 
Music Center, art is "in." Of course, once something is 
named to the "in" list you start to wonder about the sin- 
cerity of the interest. Nonetheless, there is interest and it is 
providing the necessary funds for all forms of art to con- 

This recent popularization might be more properly called 
an "implosion." Marshall McLuhan has pointed out that 
Western man has extended himself so far that there is now 
a "technological simulation of consciousness" — He no longer 
needs to react, for the action and reaction are both pro- 
vided for him at the same time. It is the 'thinking man' 
who is sincerely turning back to the culture whence his 
consciousness came. Despite his involvement and commit- 
ment he has still, generally, avoided the establishment of a 
point of view to rival "good taste" — the enemy of cultural 

The past few years have shown a new feeling toward 
artistic activities on the Boston College Campus. There has 
been an improvement in quality and attendance as well as 
an increase in the variety of presentations. The student art 
exhibitions and the plans for the new Fine Arts Center, as 
well as the presence of C. Alexander Peloquin, Allison 
MacComber, and Peter Siragusa on campus all auger well 
for the future. 

Probably one of the most outstanding of the performing 
arts groups at B.C. is the University Chorale. The interest 
which has been shown in the group by both students and 
alumni has been growing steadily, until, in this past season, 
the concerts drew three capacity audiences to Chestnut Hill 
as well as raves from critics in Florida and New York. 
(Credit must be given to a Miss Eileen Farrell who helped 
to draw one sizeable audience.) 

There is generally a sincere interest in those who follow 
the Chorale's activities religiously. The audiences in Robert's 
Center must have both the discriminating qualities of the 
Muses as well as the stoic perseverance of posterior to enjoy 
the music while seated on the Puritan New England hard- 
wood benches provided. Happily the memory which re- 
mains is that of the music, not of the pain. 

The presentation of Miss Farrell on campus has opened 

Ronald Nief 

up a whole new world for the Chorale. If a discriminating 
artist, accustomed to working with organizations of the 
highest professional caliber, speaks as highly of the Boston 
College group as she does, then "we must be doing some- 
thing right." The audience was the largest ever to attend a 
function of this sort on the campus and everything operated 
magnificently — even the acoustics were good. And while 
B.C. was enchanted with her, she was equally enthralled 
with the Chorale's ability to move from the tenderest Pou- 
lenc to the heaviest Russian Chorus with outstanding per- 
formances of both. 

The season was loaded with firsts. The concert for the 
alumni at the Waldorf Astoria in New York marked the 
first tour engagement with the full 180 voices. Many in the 
audience had heard the men perform previously with the 
women of Molloy and New Rochelle Colleges. The ques- 
tion was generally — Why?, when you have one of the best 
women's groups right at home? No answer, but it won't 
happen again. The other milestone was the trip to Florida 
by twenty members of the group. Judging from the letters 
of Floridians who heard the performance (celebrating the 
Quadricentennial of St. Augustine) and from the lovely 
tans the gentlemen returned with, the concert was a great 
chance for exposure by all concerned. 

For ninety seven years the music groups have needed an 
adequate place to perform on campus — one that lends to 
quality rather than presents a myriad of obstacles. Since it 
is very difficult to play basketball in a concert hall, the mu- 
sic groups have had to wait their turn. Well, it's coming, 
any year now. And all it took was an explosion. . . . 


The Knowledge Explosion: The Centennial Colloquium 
at Boston College, Edited by Francis Sweeney, S.J., 
Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 249 pp., $4.95. 

In 1963, 60 scholars gathered at a seminar at Boston College to honor 
the university on its 100th anniversary. They were asked to ponder and 
discuss the theme: "The Knowledge Explosion — Liberation and Limitation." 
The number of universities represented was flattering and the intensity 
of the consideration given the theme was a commendation to the work 
that has obtained on University Heights in the past two decades. 

From the three-day program, the Rev. Francis Sweeney, S.J., whose 
Humanities Series has brought such distinction to the college, was elected 
to select a clutch of papers from those delivered and present them in 
book form as a permanent public reminder of a great moment in the 
life of Boston College. 

Three years elapsed before the essays appeared in print bearing the 
colophon of a distinguished New York publishing house — Farrar, Straus 
& Giroux. The delay was unnecessary and another instance of the desperate 
need in this country for a Jesuit university press to further the scholar- 
ship abounding at the various institutions monitored by the society. 

Father Sweeney writes in his introduction, "The cape work and sword 
play of first-class minds is always exciting and it is to be hoped that seme 
of the electric tension generated by the discussion will be transmitted 
through these pages." Some of that has already gone into the blood and fibre 
of the college itself. It is the alumni's turn to benefit. 

From one point of view, all books are best begun at the beginning 
but with these 15 papers I recommended that one first read (after Fr. 
Sweeney's introduction) Howard Mumford Jones' magnificent essay en- 
titled, "Modern Scholarship and the Data of Greatness," which is second 
in the book. First of all, it states the theme of the colloquium with ad- 
mirable simplicity: "The theme of the conference is whether we can 
simultaneously control the explosion in knowledge and maintain a free 
society resting on individual judgments. The implied dangers I suppose, 
are two. Either knowledge will be so accumulative as to dishearten men 
or the control of knowledge will come into the hands of an elite, who 
may employ the power of knowledge for purposes contrary to the demo- 
cratic belief in will and judgment." 

He concluded by saying, "It is difficult to make my point without 
unseemly rhetoric; yet is it not in experience true that he who firmly 
and quietly proposes for himself to follow that knowledge which is of 
most worth will in the long run create for himself and those around him 
a stay against confusion somewhat more lasting than the merely contem- 
porary mood?" That's as close as you can come to the agreed core of it. 

Professor Peter A. Bertocci of Boston University asked all to adopt 
a responsible commitment to mutual freedom so that the individual may 
never be lost sight of. Biologist Paul A. Weiss of the Rockefeller Institute 
emphasized the copulative "and" in "Liberation and Limitation." The cir- 
cumstances created by the "knowledge explosion" are not an "either-or" 
situation; they are a challenged that we must all live with — and by. Quite 
right, says the Rev. Edward Duff, S.J.— -the knowledge explosion has an 
immediate consequence of a loss of individuality, a push toward economic 
socialism, and a socialism of the intellect. 

John G. Kcmeny of Dartmouth, a mathematician, also chose the 
library as a parameter for the growth of information. He fears a sense 
of futility will set in, and urged a radical revamping of education, and 
seemed to indicate that the elite Jones fears is almost inescapable. Walter 
J. Bate, professor of English at Harvard University — author of the recent, 
profound study of John Keats— also called for a "new education," con- 
ceived in "drastic terms." 

To hint that the depth or substance of such admirable papers is 
touched by such snippets as given above is to do an intolerable injustice 
to each man. Read them all and in full. Let me list the other contrib- 
utors: Francis O. Schmitt of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; 
Carlton S. Coon, distinguished anthropologist; Peter H. Odegard, pro- 
fessor of political science at the University of California; Vincent P. 
Wright, Boston College professor of economics; Harold G. Cassidy, pro- 
fessor of chemistry, Yale University; Lynn T. White, Jr., professor of 
history at the University of California at Los Angeles; and Samuel A. 
Goudsmith, professor of physics at Brookhaven, National Laboratory in 

New York. The first essay is by John H. Finley, Jr., Harvard classicist, 
which I recommend leaving to the last since it had — for me — the most 
sensitive and moving mood in the book, and seemed to touch closest to 
the classical tradition which, since Origen, has flowed through the great 
Jesuit tradition. 

From the whole book, one gathers a sense of ominousness, however — 
a sense of omens, in any event, but omens not easily divined; auguries 
that can leave one shaken and concerned, for they forecast an age, or 
ages, in which the role of the Catholic university becomes more certain 
than ever, the need more evident, but the task infinitely greater, more 
uncertain, more challenging and more perilous than ever before, since it 
can no longer content itself with a defense of the faith but must leap 
into the darkness with full trust in that faith, much as Teilhard de 
Chardin did to become a gadfly to his contemporaries but, after his death, 
an inspiration to a believing and would-be-believing world.

Man-Made Morals: Four Philosophies that Shaped 
America, by William H. Marnell '27. (Doubleday & 
Co. Inc.) 

"I think that in no country in the civilized world is less attention paid 
to philosophy than in the United States. The Americans have no philosophi- 
cal school of their own; and they care but little for all the schools into 
which Europe is divided, the very names of which are scarcely known to 
them. Yet it is easy to perceive that almost all the inhabitants of the United 
States conduct their understanding in the same manner, and govern it by 
the same rules; that is to say, without ever having taken the trouble to 
define the rules, they have a philosophical method common to the whole 
people." It is precisely this method of which Alexis de Tocqueville spoke 
a century ago, a philosophical method implicit and somewhat subterranean, 
which Professor Marnell dissects in his Man-made Morals. 

This book is a refreshing example of that cross-fertilization of dis- 
ciplines which can be so fruitful. The author is a Professor of English 
Literature from whom a philosopher can learn philosophy. His insight into 
the concrete historical situations and individual personalities is organized 
by his mastery of the philosophical principles which guide, influence, and 
at times serve as excuses for decisions of practical affairs. 

For Professor Marnell, two thinkers loom above all others as incarna- 
tions of these positions. For Thomas Hobbcs, moral law is man-made. Con- 
sequently, law is the father of morality and morality is reduced to a general 
attitude beneficial to self-preservation. Thus for Hobbes, man is a social 
being not by nature, as Aristotle had seen it, but by historical necessity. 

Anthony Ashley Cooper, third Earl of Shaftesbury (1671-1713), is 
the proximate source of another major current of present day ethical think- 
ing. Religious "enthusiasm" is his starting point as the common enemy, 
and he suggests ridicule to neutralize "enthusiasm." The primary purpose of 
Shaftesbury was the refutation of Hobbes' doctrine that moral law is man- 
made. The moral sense in man seems to root the perception of moral values 
in human nature. 

All the Founding Fathers believed in a divinely created order, in God 
and divine providence. Among these rights are human freedom and equality. 
No one religion is represented. If there is a common denominator to the 
Founding Fathers' religious convictions, it is the Shaftesburian moral sense. 
The American Revolution then was grounded in the concept of natural law 
and a divinely created order. The French Revolution on the other hand was 
grounded upon the concept that' society is a mechanism, a man-made order, 
created by human will. It is Marnell's thesis that this resulted in the Reign 

Political philosophy, however, teaches an order of nature; natural law 
is rooted in the notion of nature. In political science, the particular political 
order — monarchy, aristocracy or democracy — is conventional and man- 
made; there is "no more a Divine Right of Kings than there is a Divine 
Right of Presidents." Thomas Paine may be right to destroy a man-made 
political order — but only if he has something to put in its place. The 
political order is natural to this extent. The kind of political order is arbi- 
trary but some kind of political order is natural! 

To this reader, the present day burning issues of Civil Rights and 
Federal Aid to Religious Education are examples of the pertinency of the 
principles which Professor Marnell is examining. Civil Rights are not man- 
made, but based on a more fundamental natural law. Whatever excuse may 
be claimed for Civil Disobedience for example, has to rest on the appeal to 
a more basic natural law with which particular civil laws are in conflict. 

As Professor Marnell shows so graphically, philosophy can be a danger- 
ous game! Like Russian roulette the loser can lose all that he has and is, 
while, too often for the winner all seems to remain as it was before. Yes, 
philosophy is dangerous in its fashion — but neglect of philosophy enables 
metaphysical principles to go underground, as it were, and to influence 
thinking which on the surface appears to be simply pragmatic and practical.

When that last final examination has 
been given and the Commencement 
program becomes history, the college 
professors depart from the campus, 
cheered by the thought of a long, lazy 
summer. True 3 Far from it! The cam- 
pus is nearly as busy in summer as it is 
throughout the academic year. Many 
faculty members teach in the summer 
session, while others have greater op- 
portunity to proceed with specific re- 
search in their field of endeavor. 

Here is just a sampling of the sum- 
mer work done by some of the Boston 
College faculty. From the Department 
of Economics, Prof. Leon Smolinski 
visited Europe doing research on Karl 
Marx's attitude towards advanced math- 
ematical methods in economic research. 
"Soviet economists," says Dr. Smolin- 
ski, "opposed the use of mathematical 
economics for many years; as a result, 
their economic theory remains primi- 
tive. I want to find out how justified 
their claims were." 

Prof. Joseph Sullivan, Associate 
Chairman, Mathematics, continued his 
writing of a book on Real Analysis, 
under contract to Van Nostrand Co., in 
cooperation with Prof. N. B. Haaser of 
Notre Dame. The book will be used at 
the college junior-senior level and in- 
clude such topics as metric spaces, 
normed linear spaces and Lebesque in- 

From the Psychology department, 
Prof. Joseph Cautela has also begun a 
contract with Van Nostrand to do a 
book on Behavior Therapy. The sub- 
ject calls for a new approach to the 
treatment of abnormal behavior based 
on learning principles and is expected 
to challenge the psychoanalytic treat- 
ment of behavior disorders. 

A summer grant has enabled Prof. 
John R. Betts of the History depart- 
ment to continue work on his book, 
"Sports in American Social History" as 
well as continued research on his biog- 
raphy of P. T. Barnum. 

The Physics department, busier than 
ever with its preparations to move into 
their new quarters in Higgins Hall, did 
not slow down from its usual busy re- 
search projects. Dr. Joseph Chen con- 
tinued work on a research contract from 
the Air Force Cambridge Research 
Laboratories, studying the growth and 
Physical properties of optical and mag- 
netic single crystals. Dr. Robert Carovil- 
lano, working under another Air Force 
contract, is doing advanced research on 

space physics. Under a NASA spon- 
sored project, Rev. John Kinnier, S.J., 
spent the summer at the Goddard 
Space Flight Center in Maryland, while 
Dr. Edward Jezak received a summer 
faculty appointment to the Center for 
Graduate Study in Richmond, Wash- 

Also preparing to move into new 
quarters, the Biology department pro- 
ceeded with a number of special re- 
search projects. Rev. William D. Sul- 
livan, S.J., Chairman is doing cancer 
research under a grant from the Massa- 
chusetts division of the Cancer Institute 
and has already published a number of 
reports on his findings. Dr. Yu-Chen 
Ting and Dr. Chai-Hyun Yoon are re- 
searching under National Institute of 
Health grants; Dr. Robert Coleman 
and Dr. Joseph Orland both work with 
a National Science Foundation grants. 
The move to the larger quarters in Hig- 
gins will bring expanded programs to 
the department, including Biochem- 
istry, Biophysics, Immunochemistry and 
Electron Microscopy. 

In the Geology department, Fr. James 
Skehan, S.J., under an Air Force Lab- 
oratory project, continued his research 
on geophysical data in connection with 
earthquake activity near the Olympic- 
Wallowa mountain area of Oregon- 

Summer quiet on the Heights? Nev- 
er — there work continues incessantly in 
the quest for more learning in this day 
of the "knowledge explosion." 


Although over 75 additions were 
made to the University faculty for the 
coming year, present space permits the 
mention of but a few. Perhaps the most 
interesting appointments were made in 
the Theology department, where in the 
spirit of ecumenism, a Catholic woman, 
a Jewish scholar and a Protestant lay- 
man were named to the faculty. Dr. 
Mary Daly holds a Ph.D. from both St. 
Mary's College, Notre Dame and the 
University of Fribourg. Dr. David Nei- 
man received his Ph.D. from Dropsie 
College for Hebrew and Cognate Learn- 
ing, Philadelphia, while Dr. Joseph A. 
Burgess, with a Bachelor of Divinity 
from Luther Theological Seminary, St. 
Paul, holds a Doctorate in Theology 
from the University of Basel, Switzer- 


Alumni Weekend Aftermath 

"Coming from out of town, my wife 
and I particularly appreciated the ar- 
rangements which permitted us to stay 
at Cheverus Hall. I hope this practice 
will be continued at least for the anni- 
versary classes if not for all." 

Albert V. Nyren, '41 
Department of State, 
Washington, D.C. 

"The members of the Class of 1916 
express their gratitude for the excellent 
arrangements made for their comfort 
and convenience during the Alumni 
Weekend. I am deeply grateful to you 
for your courteous and efficient coopera- 
tion that produced such excellent re- 

Francis }. Roche, '16 

"A great time was had by all in this 
'first' Alumni Weekend. It made it es- 
pecially nice for us on our Tenth Anni- 
versary. Thank you for this great job 
you have done." 

Pat and Mert Thompson, '56 

'Just a brief note to congratulate you 
and your associates on the wonderful 
Alumni Weekend program which was 
carried off so successfully. It was the 
best planned, best executed and best 
carried out by all concerned. The re- 
ports that I have heard on every event 
were excellent." 

Tom Cudmore, '40 

'On behalf of the members of the 
Silver Anniversary Class, I wish to ex- 
tend our sincere thanks for your con- 
tribution to the success of our 25th reu- 
nion. Cheverus Hall was a delightful 
spot, everyone was pleased with the food 
in McElroy and at the Champagne 
Dance, but the Baccalaureate Mass, 
Commencement and the reception fol- 
lowing, provided a grand climax to a 
truly wonderful weekend. 

We of the Class of 1941 are convinced 
that this great Alumni Weekend of 
1966, brought together the best alumni 
gathering in the history of Boston Col-

Twenty-nine days from Quincy to Califor- 
nia. Sounds like the days of the Prairie 
Schooner. Actually it was quite a few years 
later, to be exact 1923 when George J. Casey, 
accompanied by his wife, Lillian Gertrude 
Harrington, of Roxbury and their family 
made this trip, part of it through the still 
formidable Indian Country in what he called 
an "Overland Special" with six flaps to pro- 
tect against storms. 

George settled in Hollywood. His wife, 
under the name of Louise Gibney, had a long 
and successful career as a silent screen favor- 
ite. Their Golden Wedding will be celebrated 
on April 6, 1967. They have one son, three 
daughters, twelve grandchildren, and two 
great grandchildren. 

Their son, Clarke Jerome Casey, is an au- 
thority on Americana and geneology. Asso- 
ciated with the Cherokee Book Shop he has 
contributed rare books to several California- 
colleges. He starred as an end on the foot- 
ball teams of Loyola High and Loyola Uni- 
versity, Los Angeles, and is one of their all- 
time greats. Daughter Patricia, known as 
Lorna Thayer worked as a child actress in 
motion pictures. She is an alumna of Im-

may return for another year despite the fact 
that a wag on the faculty asked him if he

professed tertiary, Brother Anthony in the 
Third Order of Saint Francis. Any Sunday 
you may find leading Propers and Petitions 
of the Faithful at the seven o'clock morning 
Mass in the Blessed Sacrament Church, Jes- 
uit, in Hollywood. George describes himself 
as an average citizen. His classmates would 
rank him as superior — the quiet man who 
gets things done. 

Charles O'Halloran retired from the Bos- 
ton schools five years ago. He and his wife 
decided to make a permanent retirement 
home in Savannah, Georgia because their 
daughter, four grandchildren from 16 to 4

Our Golden Anniversary Celebration was 
a great success due to the wonderful work of 
Frank Roche, Fred Gillis, Monsignor Mc- 
Nulty and Dr. Roy Heffernan.

ceived many honors: Our class list shows 
two Bishops and thirty-seven Priests, one

Educators including one College President 
and one Superintendent of the Boston Public

Service, two Dentists, seven Doctors, eight 
War Casualties and two Classmates died 
while Seminarians. 

On Alumni Day, a plaque in remembrance 
of Jack Atkinson was blessed and dedicated 
in Alumni Hall. 

Our most memorable event was the Re- 
ception to the class by the President of the 
College. The greatest number of class mem- 
bers and their wives attended this meeting. 
Father Walsh presented each member of the 
class with a beautiful Coat-of-Arms of Boston 
College. For the first time our wives parti- 
cipated in all events. 

Harold Fleming was elected our President 
for 1966-1967. 

The couple who came the longest distance 
was Arthur Gormley and his wife — all the 
way from Iowa. 

Dr. Roy Heffernan received a nice note 
from Father Gerald Fitzgerald . . . 
"Dear Dr. Roy, 

I'm afraid I am a sort of lost tribe of 
Israel as regards to B.C. '16 is concerned — 
but let me assure you it is of the necessity 
of the job the Lord has given me to do rather 
than indiffering to our wonderful Class at 
B.C. To both B.C. and our classmates I am 
permanently grateful. 

Regards to the classmates passing slowly 
by en route to the greater 'Heights'."

Fr. Joe Merrick, S.J. in reply to the gift 
which the class sent to him in Baghdad 
states that the gift was donated to Jesuit 
Missions. He, along with the rest of the 
class, is thinking of the passage of time and 
expressed himself as being in a state of won- 
derment as to how many who formed the 
first freshman class at the Heights in 1913 
are alive. 

Bo Mahoney reports that son, Michael, 
graduated from St. Michael's in June will 
enter Wyoming University on a COE fel- 
lowship and will work towards his master's

On Sunday, June 19, 1966 Rev. Martin P. 
Harney S.J. celebrated his fiftieth annivers- 
ary as a member of the Society of Jesus by 
offering a Solemn High Mass in St. Ignatius 
Church, Chestnut Hill. The deacon of the 
Mass was Rev. Maurice • V. Dullea S.J. and 
the sub-deacon Rev. James J. Mohan S.J. The 
sermon was given by another classmate Rev. 
Edward T. Douglas S.J. After the Mass 
Father Harney held a reception for one 
thousand guests in the McElroy Commons. 

The class has suffered a severe loss in the 
death of John J. Joyce on May 3, 1966. John 
was an able student with a buoyant, happy 
personality which attracted a host of friends 
throughout the alumni. Our deep sympathy 
is extended to the members of his family. 
We shall sorely miss John's happy presence 
at the alumni gatherings. 

Our heartfelt sympathy goes out !o our 


The Alumni VS 

class president "Joe" McAvinnue whose wife 
Edith was killed in an automobile collision 
on November 14, 1965; also to Father Leo 
O'Day on the death of his sister, and to 
"Chris" Garrahan on the death of his brother 
John. We trust that the members of the class 
will ask God to grant to the departed dear 
ones everlasting peace and to their bereaved 
families the grace and courage to bear this 
pain of loss. 

The "Lowell contingent" always so loyal 
to class and alumni activities reports that 
Johnnie Gardner, one of its most faithful 
members, has been recently hospitalized but 
is now rapidly recovering.

Seen at Father Martin Harney's golden 
anniversary party at the Heights were Jack 
Sheehan, Monsignor John Lane, Tom Gately, 
Joe Joyce, Frank Earls and the class secre- 
tary. It was a wonderful tribute to a wonder- 
ful priest and 1920 congratulates Father 
Martin who is our annual guest at our re- 

May 29th found many of the Forty Thieves 
celebrating the 50th anniversary of their 
graduation from B.C. High School. Receiv- 
ing their gold diplomas were Fred Donaher, 
Gerry O'Neil, Joe White, Art Robertie, Pop 
Pyne, Billy Bond, Duke Wellings, Fiank 
O'Brien, Phil Mackey, John McMorrow and 
Bob Brawley who received an honorary one. 

Alumni Week in June is difficult to report 
on as attendance was scattered amid the 
varied activities but Father Lane, Jack Shee- 
han, Joe Joyce, Pop Pyne, and the class secre- 
tary were seen at several of the functions. 
Mr. and Mrs. Ed Crowley attended the re- 
ception to Father Rector on June 15 at the 
Bal Harbour Beach Club in Florida by the 
B.C. Club of Miami. Bill Lyons better known 
to 1920 as Yinnid Snoyl was in town at Com- 
mencement time and dropped in for lunch 
with the class secretary. He renewed mem- 
ories of his World War I days when he was 
assigned to Holy Cross College as an in- 
structor following his commissioning as a 
lieutenant in the Army and had Bob Coyne, 
the cartoonist in his outfit. He and Bob were 
reminiscing when in came Leo Aicardi. This 
now became a real reunion as Bill Lyons was 
on here from Goleta Bay, Calif, and Leo 
Aicardi was up from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida 
and both met by chance at the secretary's 

Jack and Loretta Sheehan vacationed in 
Ireland in the past late spring. The class 
of 1920 extends its best wishes to Agnes 
Wellings who was married in July. Dan 
Lucey has had a rough year so far having 
been hospitalized several times but his faith- 
ful pal, Pop Pyne reports him as recovering 
nicely. The vice president in charge of birth- 
day cards has to apologize once more to 
1920. Due to hospitalization a complete foul- 
up occurred so if your greetings came at the 
wrong time, please forgive him. Those birth- 
days came fast enough at our age without 
being speeded up.

The class extends its sincere sympathy to 
Mrs. Gordon Irons and to the members of 
her family upon the sudden death of Gordon 
on July 15, 1966. He was in excellent spirits 
at the Alumni Day Exercises in June, and 

^f The Alumni 

his death was a shock to us. Gordon, as our 
permanent Class Secretary, correspondent 
for our Class News and active in solicitation 
for gifts to the College for many years, was 
very loyal to Alma Mater. 

Bishop Minihan presided at the Solemn 
High Mass. The celebrant was a first cousin 
of Gordon. In the sanctuary were Father 
Martin Harney, S.J., Father Walter Mcln- 
erney, brother of our Henry, and several 
other priests. Father Walsh, S.J., President of 
the College, and two priest members of the 
faculty said prayers for the soul of Gordon 
at the wake. 

Included in the Honorary Pallbearers were 
Messrs. Jack Burke, Fallon, Frank Hannon, 
McGrath, O'Neil, O'Regan, Russo, and your 

At the Alumni Day Exercises, in addition 
to Gordon, were Fathers Fox, O'Lalor and

Gookin, Griffin, McGrath, Mclnerney, Mur-

In June Jim Fitzpatrick retired after 45 
years as teacher, coach and Athletic Director 
at Portland Maine High School, where for 
many years he established an enviable record 
as a gentleman, teacher and coach. On May 
30, 1966 he was toasted at a testimonial din- 
ner, attended by over 600 friends and ad- 
mirers, including his old battery mate and 
receiving end, Luke Urban. Best of luck to 
you Jim, for the future. 

Judge John Sullivan continues his extend- 
ed winter vacations at Palm Springs and 
summer vacations at Osterville which ac- 
counts for his proclamation that he will be 
in active harness for many years to come. 

This space will be reserved in the next 
issue for the purpose of recording the iden- 
tity of classmates with great-grandchildren. 
Don't laugh. 

A A 15 Kirk St., W. Roxbury, Mass. 

Because I spent the summer in Maine, 
class news is hard to gather. However it 
seem that retirements of class members are 
of first interest this issue. John Barry has 
retired from his post of a Vice-Preisdent of 
National Shawmut Bank after a very busy 
and fruitful life as news commentator, Globe 
editor, and so on ad infimitrim. Charles 
Collins has retired from his very exciting 
position as a Vice-President of Old Colony 
Trust and spent part of his early retirement 
in Europe. Ralph Shea has retired from his 
life time with Standard Brands and is now 
Postmaster at Osterville. Hubert Gilgan has 
retired from a lifetime of teaching and as an 
administrator and headmaster of his Ran- 
dolph High and finally superintendent. These 
retirements leave only a few of us actually 
at work. While on the subject of retirement, 
I might say that Portland Press Herald full 
page feature to Jimmy Fitzpatrick '21 
showed how well the great Jimmy was held 
in esteem by his many friends and colleagues 
in New England sportsfields and among edu- 
cators. In my opinion Jimmy was the athlete 
who did the most for Boston College in its 
entire history — four letter man: football, 
baseball, hockey, and basketball, captain of 
two sports — surely the legendary figure 
of all time. 

We expect President James Doyle to an- 

nounce the chairman of our 45th annivers- 
ary soon — and expect great things on Alumni 
Day, 1967.

As we enter our 42nd year as members 
of the Alumni, it is our sad task to record 
the passing of another of our class leaders 
of student days. Joseph M. Gavan, prize 
orator and outstanding debater in high school 
and college years, died June 17th in Cam- 
bridge, Mass. The funeral was from the resi- 
dence on Allston Street where Joe had lived 
all his life. Upon graduation from Harvard 
Law School he had become Secretary to the 
Chief Justice of the Mass. Supreme Court, 
helping in case researches and in decision 
writing. Later he practiced law in Cambridge 
until the time of his death. R.I.P. 

June 17th also marked the passing of 
Fr. Jerry Gearans' mother, in Waltham, 
Mass. Fr. Jerry came from Lompac, Cali- 
fornia and was visited by several classmates 
who had noticed the name in the newspaper 
death list, where the announcement of Mrs. 
Gearans' death was just above Joe Gavans*. 
(Fr. Jerry appears to be the youngest looking 
and least changed in appearance of all of 
our classmates. He is pensioned from the 
Navy where he was a Chaplain for a long 
time and is soon to be pensioned from the 
federal prison at Lompac where he is now 

On July 14th our well remembered class- 
mate Bernard Walsh died. Bernie was a 
Brookline resident while at B.C., but after 
graduation he moved to Somerville where 
he served thirty years as a teacher in the 
public schools. He is survived by his wife, 
Kathleen (Hargraves), a son, Bernard Jr., 
two daughters, Kathleen (Gilardi) and Mar- 

garet, and two sisters, Isabell and Margaret 
Walsh of Brookline. 

The annual McCrehan Award this year 
was presented at the baseball teams "Break 
up" dinner as the June 11th Holy Cross 
game was cancelled due to rain. Joe Koz-

On the June 12 evening T.V. news broad- 
casts, our classmate Frank Galline appeared 
vigorously shaking hands with a handi- 
capped invalid pupil he had tutored through 
high school. Superintendent Ohrenberger 
and Mrs. Hicks of the School Committee 
were present to congratulate the diploma re- 
cipient in his home, and Frank shared in the 
tribute paid in recognition of a most un- 
usual achievement. It will be remembered 
that Frank helped many less handicapped 
persons (classmates) through B.C. in the 

Then a few weeks later during the Re- 
publican State Convention our "Red Dan" 
Lynch sat in full view of the camera (often 
close up) while George Lodge, Edward 
Brook and Senator Saltonstall spoke and 
during the counting of ballots Daniel was 
"on camera." This went on for about an 
hour until viewers began to telephone in and 
ask whether photogenic Dan was going to 
speak, sing, dance or explain what happens 
to parking tags at the Boston Municipal 

Earlier in the year — Invited to the Presi- 
dent dinner for wealthy class members on 
April 27 were the following: Lester Calla- 
han, "Tref" Maloney, Fred Mahony, Al Hy- 
land, John Hanrihan, Ed O'Neil, and Jack 
McDonald. Dun and Bradstreet ratings 
brought these names to the top as worthy 
representatives of the Medicare and Poverty 
Program set — including those hidden in 
church rectories, on teachers pension rolls, 
and in security institutions of the govern- 
ment. They oversubscribed the Development 

Advertising in The Pilot, front page, Fran- 
cis P. Carroll '25 (whom Ed. Brickley de- 
scribes as a "look alike" for Harry Truman) 
announced a Motor Coach Tour on July 23 
and 24 to New Hampshire. John Hanrihan's 
Albany Carpet Cleaning Company likewise 
had front page space. The late Frank Ebery's 
Ford Co. — advertisement was on the back 
page. These with an occasional McLaughlin 
& Reilly Co. ad give B.C. '25 fair represen- 
tation in our diocesan paper and reflect our 
vigorous efforts to maintain a favorable eco- 
nomic climate hereabouts for future B.C. 

Speaking of future generations, here are 
a few items about children of our classmates: 

On June 25th, Margaret Doyle, B.C. grad- 
uate, and daughter of our first class Presi- 
dent, Billy "Dyker" Doyle, married B.C. 
graduate Thomas Wheelan of Gardner, Mass. 
The ceremony was performed by Msgr. Jay 
Doyle (Dyker's brother). The bride was 
given in marriage by her brother James. 
Mary, a sister, was maid of honor, and the 
children of another sister (Patricia) served 
as Junior bridesmaids (Ellen and Susan 
Flanagan of Detroit, Mich.) and as flower 
girl (Maureen). Ushers included William J. 
(Jr.) John and Richard and Paul. William 
(Jr.) is a well known Antique Dealer on 

Third Avenue in New York City and Patri- 
cia's twin sister Anne continues on the road 
to eminence in the field of education. She is 
a Professor at Mt. Holyoke College. Mrs. 
Wm. J. Doyle (Marie Gallahue) mother, (and 
grandmother) of the above, and herself a 
Radcliffe graduate, is back teaching — to fill 
out her spare time now. 

The Emmanuel College News (May 1966 
issue) reported on the family of our Hon. 
John C. Fitzgerald, (Circuit Court Judge in 
Chicago), Mrs. (Mildred Collins) Fitzgerald 
and their five children. J. Cushing is a trader 
(we assume that to be on the Stock Ex- 
change). Ann lives in Greenwich, Conn., 
Moira a Toronto University graduate, is 
married to a medical student at Chicago 
Univ. Sara is a Marquette graduate now 
specializing in Montessori training, Mark 
(19) is a sophomore engineering student at 
the University of Illinois. 

Dedham Superintendent of Schools, Law- 
rence Brown '25, (and his brother Rev. John 
'25) were proud witnesses at the graduation 
of John's twin daughters, Kathleen and 
Carol, who with John's son, James, received 
degrees from the B.C. School of Education 
in June. Kathleen won the Mr. and Mrs. 
Vincent Roberts award presented that day. 
Our year book was dedicated to Mrs. Roberts, 
you will remember, and Vincent Roberts re- 
ceived an honorary degree from the College 
in appreciation of his many benefactions. So 
the class of 1925 figured high in B.C. affairs 
again this year. Lawrence resigned his $18,- 
600 a-year-post this month and will take life 
a little easier now. 

Kathleen Ellen Hyland, daughter of our 
Albert J., graduated in June from Newton 
College of the Sacred Heart with an A.B. 

Kathryn Mary Spellman, born July 19 is 
your Correspondent's third grandchild. 

George F. Donovan, Director of, and Pro- 
fessor in, the Higher Education Program, 
School of Education, The Catholic University 
of America, Washington, has accepted the 
position of Chairman of the Department of 
Education at Marquette University, Mil- 

JJQ 40 Tennyson Street 

West Roxbury, Mass. 02132 

The summer seems to be the dry period, 
as far as news goes; all you wealthy gents 
take off for parts unknown and no one hears 
about you until football starts again. Met 
Frankie Colbert a week ago, crossing the 
street in front of his Dedham postoffice; 
there he was, bending over to take a peek 
at the plates on my car as I drove along. He 
was admiring my "B.C.-26" plates, without 
knowing who was driving. Frank is well and 
busy completing the "Bay State Postmaster," 
of which he is the editor. 

Wedding notices and items about our 
various offspring gives a bit of news. Connie 
Moynihan's young Connie married Elizabeth 
Rouse of Maryland in July. Young Connie is 
Georgetown and Harvard Law and the young 
lady is Manhattanville and Middlebury. Pat- 
rick J. Sullivan, the late Pat's boy, married 
Phyllis Fay of Roxbury early this summer; 
they'll live in Brighton. Ed Mullowney's 
daughter Mary O'Hearn (remember Ed's 
middle name?) married George Birch of 
Mountain Lakes, N.J. She was Cardinal 
Cushing College and he was Colby. 


The Alumni ^3 

Our own John, B.C. '64 and Dartmouth 
Grad School '66, married Ellen Condon of 
West Roxbury in June; they're living for the 
time being in Rumford, Maine, where John 
works with Oxford Paper Company. They 
will live in New York in January. Ellen's 
dad, Dick, is a regular at all sports events at 
the Heights. She is an Emmanuel grad. John 
and Mae Dorsey looked very well when I 
saw them in June as did Anna and John 
Dooley. Dool is up to his ears, as the School 
Department is moving his Audio-visual head- 
quarters out to Jamaica Plain. My older 
daughter Patricia just moved out next to 
John in a lovely section of Westwood, Fair- 
way Acres. 

Met Art Murray at Kiwanis last week, 
looking well after a three week cruise along 
the Maine coast in his lovely 34-footer. He 
gave me the news that Tom Cavanagh has 
left Internal Revenue and has associated with 
a law firm in Boston, Taylor, Foley and Sul- 
livan, of 101 Tremont Street, with whom 
Tom will specialize in Taxation, naturally, 
and both Estate Analysis and Planning. 
Then, three days later, didn't I find myself 
in the same row in church on the Cape with 
the same Arthur and his lovely wife. Brought 
them back to the house for coffee, of course. 
(Ed note: Arthur met a Dr. John Sullivan, 
'31, on that Maine cruise; another boater.) 

Paul Sullivan, living in West Roxbury, is 
retiring from his long connection with the 
Navy and is too young to just loaf; he's look- 
ing into another category of work. John 
Dooley sent me a color snap of a terrazzo 
mosaic dedicated to Bill Cunningham, which 
photo he took in Hollywood on a recent tour 
which covered Hawaii, Vegas and Tiajuana, 
among other spots. Of course, it was the 
former late columnist but it sure looked im- 

Charlie Carroll of Hicksville, L.I. was re- 
cently appointed a Council member for a 
newly established State University College in 
Nassau County, in his home area; this by 
Gov. Nelson Rockefeller. It'll have 10,000 
students on a 500-acre campus. Nice recogni- 
tion for banker Charlie. 

And a late item just picked from our lo- 
cal Parkway Transcript tells of the marriage 
of Ellen M. Delahunt, Thomas Philip's 
daughter, to young Frank McCarthy of Ros- 
lindale, at South Weymouth. He's B.C., with 
a U.M. master's degree; she's U. Mass, too. 
Young McCarthy is an instructor at Boston 
State, where his dad, Dr. Frank, Sr., also 
B.C., is a professor. O.K., so there's not much 
news. Why don't you do something about 
it? See you round and about the Heights 
during the football season.

The 1966 edition of the Boston College Eagles is ready to 
kickoff another exciting football season. Since September 
1st, Jim Miller and 82 gridiron candidates have been work- 
ing hard in preparation for the September 17th opener with 

For the first time in 35 years the football team held its 
pre-season training away from the Heights. The cozy con- 
lines of The Cranwell School in the picturesque Berkshires 
was the sight of the first 10 days of practice. 

Captain Ed Lipson led a squad which has a nucleus of 
26 lettermen. There are 30 sophomores, 30 juniors and 22 
seniors in the group. 

The 1966 schedule is attractive and challenging and the 
feeling is that with a few breaks, it could be another excel- 
lent season. 

THE OUTLOOK FOR 1966 — Several question marks 
in the make-up of the 1966 Eagles cause the forecasting of 
their football fortunes for the coming season to be some- 
what difficult. 


Key Eagles for 1966: left to right: Dick DeLeonardis, Jr. halfback from 
Pittsburgh; Mike Evans, Jr. center also from Pittsburgh; John Blair, Sr. 
quarterback from New Britain, Connecticut; Brendan McCarthy, Jr. full- 
back from Washington, D.C. and Terry Erwin, Jr. halfback from Beverly. 


Director, Sports Publicity 

This is not to say that the potential for a good, solid team 
and the chance for another fine season, are not present. But 
rather that in the loss of 17 lettermen through graduation 
some key areas were hit hard. In the group of 17 are in- 
cluded the entire first unit defensive backfield and the num- 
ber one offensive quarterback of the past two seasons. These 
are the two areas Jim Miller is most concerned with in the 
rebuilding phase. Miller also will be without three outstand- 
ing interior linemen and three top offensive ends. The of- 
fensive end position is another major concern for 1966. 

The coaching staff worked hard through Spring and 
early Fall practice to come up with the right combination 
in the defensive backfield and to decide upon the successor 
to Eddie Foley's quarterbacking position from several prom- 
ising prospects and to develop some strength at offensive 
end from a group of sophomores who should be good ones. 
Most of these replacements have had little, if any, varsity 
game experience. Only after the first few games will a pre- 
diction of their performances be reliable. 

The Eagles' strength for 1966 will be in their running 
backs and interior lines (offensively and defensively) 
where most of the 26 returning lettermen are found. The 
running backs, headed by big Brendan McCarthy at full- 
back, boast good speed, power, depth and experience. If 
they can be complimented by a potent passing quarterback, 
they will be that much more of a threat. The B.C. line will 
be big, strong, mobile and will have good depth. 

Coach Miller plans to get deeper into the offensive and 
defensive platooning this season. He will have an offensive 
unit, a defensive unit and a third that will go either way. 
As the season wears on, and depending on the injury situa- 
tion, Miller hopes to have his entire squad divided into 
offensive and defensive teams. 

B.C.'s 1966 schedule is once again the best in New Eng- 
land and one of the better and more imposing schedules in 
the East. Kicking off the season with Navy at Annapolis 
will immediately provide more basis for prognostication 
for the remainder of the season. 


Sophomore ends who bear watching: left to right: John Egan, 6-4 from 
New Milford, N.J. and Barry Gallup, 6'3" from Swampscott. 

New Eagle Quarterback? Dave "The Dart" Thomas, a 6'2", 202-lb 
sophomore from Stamford, Conn., a potential All-American. 


John "Snooks" Kelley will be starting his 30th year as 
Head Coach of the Boston College hockey team come Oc- 
tober. The Dean of American College Hockey Coaches 
posted his 28th winning season (out of 29) and reached 
another memorable milestone in his amazing career last 
season when the Eagles recorded win No. 400 for him (on 
February 22, 1966 against Dartmouth). He has now com- 
piled 402 wins against only 174 losses and 14 ties for a 
phenomenal percentage of .682. Would you believe that 
"Snooks" is already pointing to the 500 win mark? 

His 1965-66 sextet, riddled by a rash of injuries to five 
key players, were hurting badly at mid-season but bounced 
back in typical Boston College tradition and roared down 
the stretch with 10 victories in the final 12 games and into 
their 5th consecutive E.C.A.C. playoff. 

Looking ahead to 1966-1967, 
the loss of six outstanding men 
through graduation will take a 
heavy toll on John Kelley's 
30th edition of hockey at the 
Heights. Five of the six were 
starters and included in the 
group of the high scoring first 
line of the past two seasons 
headed by two-time All-Amer- 
ica John Cunniff. However, 
Kelley has often turned these 
so called "off" years into pleas- 
antly surprising years and don't bet against it in 1966-67. 
Captain-elect Jerry York will lead an Eagle squad with 
10 lettermen forming a nucleus from which to build. York 
led all B.C. scorers last season with 21 goals and 16 assists 
for 37 points. Paul "the Shot" Hurley, one of the better 
rushing defensemen in the college ranks, was right behind 
Jerry with 35 points (9 goals and 26 assists). He will be a 
junior as will forwards Whitey Allen and Gordie Clarke 

Coach John "Snooks" Kelley 

Captain Jerry York 

and defenseman Steve Dowling, all outstanding perform- 
ers. Top seniors next season will be forwards Bob Kupka 
and Dick Fuller and big defenseman Woody Johnson. Jeff 
Cohen, who split the goal tending duties with Pat Murphy 
and played 15 fine games in the nets, will also return. 

Most of the strength from last year's frosh sextet may be 
from behind the blue line. There should be enough prom- 
ising prospects from Bernie Burke's boys to provide Coach 
Kelley with the depth neces- 
sary to record another winning 
season . 

BOB COUSY — The 1966- 
67 season ahead will mark 
Bob's 4th year as the coach of 
the Boston College basketball 
team. The incomparable 
"Cooz", who sparked the equal- 
ly incomparable Boston Celtics 
to 6 World Championships in 
his last seven seasons, played 
in the N.B.A. for 13 years (and 
in 13 All-Star games). An All-America on the great Holy 
Cross teams of 1947-50, "Mr. Basketball" is now making his 

Coach Bob Cousy 

A three time All-America choice from Inter- 
national Falls, Minnesota will play his col- 
lege hockey at the Heights. Tim Sheehy, 
holder of a national record, scoring three 
goals in 31 seconds, chose Boston College, 
because in his words "it is a Jesuit school 
and one of the nation's outstanding hockey 
colleges." His three season total of 114 goals 
and 120 assists led his school to three straight 
Minnesota titles. 

mark as one of college basketball's more brilliant young 
mentors. Bob has upped his record from 10-11 his first sea- 
son (1963-64) to 22-7 (1964-65) and finally a fantastic 21-5 
record this past season, including a second straight N.I.T. 
bid and an excellent team showing in the Madison Square 
Garden's Christmas Festival as well. This gives Bob a rather 
enviable total of 53 wins against 23 losses for a healthy per- 
centage of .697. 

Looking ahead to 1966-67, Boston College could be in for 
still another outstanding hoop season with a couple of "ifs" 
thrown in. The greatest basketball player in the history of 
the school thus far, John Austin, has graduated; so has Cap- 
tain Ed Hockenbury. All-America Austin rewrote the scor- 
ing record book in his 3-year varsity career. He averaged 
28 poinst a game overall and won countless games with his 
storybook heroics. Hockenbury was the team's playmaker 
who sparked the now famous B.C. fast break the past 2 
seasons. Needless to say, they'll not be easily replaced. 

However, a solid nucleus will return headed by Cap- 
tain-elect Willie Wolters a 6-8 center whose rebounding 
ranks with the best in the 
country and Steve Adelman a 
6-5 cornerman who was sensa- 
tional as a sophomore aver- 
aging 30 points a game over 
the second half of the season. 
A host of capable backcourt 
men return led by 6-2 Doug 
Hice, 6-0 Jack Kvancz and 6-2 
Steve Kelleher. Hice will be a 
senior, the others juniors and 
all played well last year. The 
"Cooz" should have a strong 
bench and will inherit 2 soph- 
omores-to-be who have tremendous potential. They are 6-7 
forward Terry Driscoll who averaged 30 points on the frosh 
five and Bill Evans a 5-11 back- 
court man who should develop 
quickly into a standout field 

Thus, "if" any two of sev- 
eral potentially outstanding 
players can pick up the slack 
left by Austin and Hocken- 
bury, and "if" the new starting 
five can jell quickly against an 
imposing schedule, Bob Cousy 
and his Eagles will continue 

to SOar. Steve Adelmai

I know it says on the masthead of the 
Alumni News that it is published three times 
a year, but those notes from Thomas O'C. 
Murray roll in so often that it seems he slips 
an extra issue in now and then just to keep 
us off balance. 

We did pick up some notes about these 
persons who got out in 1928 — but we did it 
the hard way by putting a finger in the dial 
and telephoning. Apropos the telephone calls, 
it is a matter of interest to me that I never 
seem to get the adults in the family when 
I call late at night. It's always the sons and 
daughters. I thought by this time they would 
be sitting on the front poch, rocking placidly, 
but not so. They are always "out to dinner." 

Gene Plociennik was a home though. His 
youngest daughter, and last at home, was 
married to Bevin Boyd who is a senior at 
Bishop's University in Quebec. (There's some 
vague note here about Santiago throwing a 
two-hitter for the Red Sox. Anybody know 
a man named Santiago in the class?) . . . 
Frank Phelan was out but his daughter, 
Kathy, told me she is a sophomore at New- 
ton College of the Sacred Heart. She speaks 
in the pleasant tone of her father . . . Nor- 
man Steele was relaxing on vacation, but the 
conversation was a trifle disconnected and 
interrupted — he was suffering from a case of 
poison ivy. Norman's son was married re- 
cently in Los Angeles ... I was curious about 
Dr. George Lyons in Roslindale. I remem- 
bered he was a doctor in the navy in WW II 
attached to the Marines, and I wondered if 
he was in now. He's not, but in the reserve 
and if things get any worse! . . . 

Within a few weeks Arthur I. (Pete) Mor- 
rissey, the mayor of North Redington Beach 
on Florida's Gulf Coast, should be heading 
north to stand on the sidelines and watch 
fall football practice. Someone had better tell 


him that Mr. Miller's young men will be 
training at Cranwell Preparatory in Lenox 
for the Navy game. If Pete came up and 
found the practice field deserted, the shock 
would be too much for him . . . It's a long 
time since we have heard from Gene Sul- 
livan, but someone up in Springfield said he 
is with the Moore Drop Forging. Gene is a 
former selectman in Wales (not the How 
Green was my Valley Wales). This one is in 

The reception for Fr. Martin Harney, S.J. 
celebrating his 50th year in the Society of 
Jesus was memorable. St. Ignatius' Church 
was filled for the Mass, and the truly ex- 
traordinary number of 1400-plus at McElroy 
congratulated Fr. Harney. John McDevitt, 
'28, spoke simply but movingly of the deep 
affection that all of us have for Father Har- 
ney. There were many from the class there. 
The persons I saw — Vic Newton and Ann, 
Norman Steele, Maurice Downey, Dr. Joe 
McCarthy and Margaret from Concord, N.H., 
Dr. Joe Lynch from Foxboro, Tom O'Brien 
from Athol, Dan Driscoll, Bill Harrington, 
Owen Dooley and Alice, Frank Phelan, Mai 
McLeod and Emory Zirpolo and his wife. 

And after the item I carried about Emory 
in the last issue it was a shock to have him 
grab me by the shoulder. I thought my time 
was here and he had come back for me! As 
Mark Twain said, "The report ... is greatly 

That was a very pleasant wedding and re- 
ception . . . Dick Condon's daughter, Ellen,

Babson Institute. 

Going back to Fr. Harney and the Jesuits 
who taught us in those years from 1924 to 
1928 . . . we owe them so much. It's a 
warmth that can't be put into words without 
being sentimental. 

Well, what's wrong with being sentimen- 

Truly those men in the black robes were 
an honor roll of good teachers and fine men. 
The names come rolling back. Fr. Pat Mc- 
Hugh, the gentle, soft-spoken man for whom 
McHugh Forum is named; Fr. Fitzpatrick 
who would look with bewilderment upon 
today's outspoken, uninhibited students; Fr. 
Dan Cronin who took over a rebellious 
rough-riding freshman section at mid-year 
and infused into us both a sudden maturity 
and the fear of the Lord; Fr. Dan Lynch 
and those really extraordinary lectures in 
Physics; Fr. Harney who could be switched 
without trouble from the boring succession 
of English royalty to light tales of the Irish 
countryside. And as he went on his brogue 
got thicker! Fr. Frank Sullivan and the then 
— Mr. — McCarthy, my cousin, who is still at 
the Heights. Fr. Jones I. J. Corrigan and Fr.

Fr. Boehm said in his lectures. 

Ah! that Fritzie Boehm, lecturer in phil- 
osophy. Tall, broad-shouldered, gruff of 
voice, supremely confident in the old Teu- 
tonic tradition of the Hohenzollerns. For 
some reason I could never understand why he 
would focus those cold eyes on me when 
he got started. (I could never understand 
why — I had no thought whatever of dis- 
agreeing with him.) "When a man makes

a refutable statement, let it hang in the air 
for a while, while you examine the man. 
What are his mental disciplines, his back 
ground, his environment, his prejudices? 
How far has he allowed personal frustration, 
antagonism and bitterness to twist and dis- 
tort his reasoning? When you have analyzed 
him and held him wriggling on the tip of 
your mental lance, then let him down gently 
and go after his statement. But be gentle 
when you demolish him. It is his mind you 
are attacking, not his pride."

Well now, Bill earned a Bachelor's degree 
this June joining Jack, '58 and Stephen '62, 
with only Paula '68 still at it. That will be 
it, and believe me, they didn't put Medicare 
in too soon. (I hope Dr. Arthur Gorman '26 
sees that. And just as a kindly word — never, 
never allow yourself to sit beside him at a 
football or hockey game. He may have slowed 
down a trifle but his voice still has a paraly- 
zing effect.) 

Charley Driscoll's daughter, Mary Ellen

Both Dan Driscoll and Dick Condon made 
a trip to Ireland, though not together. That 
would be to much for a peace-loving people

And Joe Cavanagh told me that Father

At the 71st annual convention of the In- 
ternational Apple Association, Edward J. 
O'Neill was unanimously elected President 
for the year 1965-1966 and was also named 
appleman of the year. Ed's reputation in the 
apple business is not limited to the United 
States for he is well known in many foreign 
countries, in connection with apple exports 
from J. P. Sullivan & Co. of Groton, the 
firm in which he is a partner. 

After graduation from Boston College in 
'30, Ed attended Law School there for 3 
years. Shortly thereafter he went into the 
fruit business with J. P. Sullivan & Co. He 
recently celebrated his 30th Anniversary 
with the firm. Ed lived in Groton for 28 
years and still owns an apple orchard there. 
His home is currently in Lincoln, Mass. with 
his wife Teresa. They have two children,

ciated by most of us. The Bishop was joined 
by Msgr. Meehan and Frs. Norton and Pear- 
sail from the Class in the concelebration. A 
new experience for almost all of us. The en- 
suing reception and buffet gave us the op- 
portunity to welcome to the reunion regulars 
the Joe Bradleys, assorted Careys and Caseys, 
Bill Devlins, the John Finnertys, the Bill Hel-

While traveling through Portland, Maine 
on business Jim O'Hare came upon sad news 
for the class. John P. Connolly, of that city, 
was stricken on the golf course August 7. 
Jim visited the funeral home and met John's 
wife Mary and 4 children. He planned to 
attend the services the following day. John, 
a native of Portland, was in the oil business. 
To John's wife and family we extend our 
sincere sympathy. Also from Jim we learned 
that Father Al Gibbons had recently under- 
gone a serious operation and was going to 
recuperate at his home in Revere. Jim in- 
tended to see Father Al's brother who also 
lives in Portland, for further details. To him 
we wish a speedy recovery. In his letter Jim 
also said that he expects to be a grandfather 
around the first of September. Dan Barry is 
back again this summer at the Hotel Bel- 
mont as general manager. While watch- 
ing the Baltimore Cleveland pro Football 
game the other night, we could not help 
thinking how proud John Morris would have 
been to see a former protege of his at Boston 
Technical — Dan Sullivan a former B.C. 
Star and first string offensive guard for the 
Colts. During the summer we met Leo 
Downs at the East Boston Airport where he 
was seeing his daughter off for Ireland. Three 
38ers had daughters graduated from Font- 
bonne Academy in Milton last June — Ruth 
True, Jim Casey's Virginia, and Marty Ma- 
honey's Mary. Jim Regan will have 2 boys 
at B.C. this year, Jim Jr., a senior and Mark 
a sophomore. Tom True III will be a junior 
and Jack Gately's son Peter enters senior 
year. Al Connelly would like to remind the 
former students and friends of Father Mat- 
thew Donovan, S.J. that the date of his 
Golden Jubilee celebration is Sunday, October 

2. Mass will be at noon in St. Mary's Church, 
Boston, a reception and buffet following. A 
dinner will be tendered him that evening in 
Lyons Hall B.C. at 5 P.M. District Fire 
Chief Frank Finnegan recently led a delega- 
tion to New York to attend the New York 
Fireman's Ass'n. Communion Breakfast. Paul 
Bennzaquin, moderator of a popular radio 
telephone program often consults Frank Hunt 
for advise in regard to VA problems. At last 
June's B.C. graduation Jim O'Hayre's son 
Mr. James O'Hayre Jr., S.J. accepted the 
degree for the school of Arts & Sciences. 
Also in that class were Dick Canavan's 
daughter, who is entering the convent and 
Dr. Fred Landigan's son. The sympathy of 
the class is extended to Jim Casey whose 
mother (Joe Hartigan's aunt) passed away 
recently. Dr. Dick Stanton and Bill Finan 
again represented the class of '38 on the 
Laetare Sunday Communion Breakfast com- 
mittee. Dick was on vacation in Florida at 
that time and Bill did an excellent job 
making arrangements. Dr. Arthur Buckley 
is working for the Development Fund in his 
home area — New Bedford. Art recently 
had Brendan McCarthy B.C.'s Ail-American 
Fullback candidate as a weekend guest at 
his home. 

'38' was well represented at Father Joe 
Shea, S.J. B.C. High Rector's Dinner — Bob 
Power, Al Connelly, Jim Brown, Tom True, 
Gerry Jones, Father Leo Pollard, S.J. and 
Father Frank McCarthy, S.J. Dean at the 
High School had recently broken his leg and 
could not attend. 

Tom O'Connor now lives in Garden City, 
New York. He is consultant for the Equitable 
Life Insurance Company at its main office. 
Tom has four children, Tom, Jr. and Jack 
attend Fordham University, Anne is at Post 
College and Mary is a high school Junior. 
In the notes turned in at the last class dinner. 
John Dromey reported that he is "still" 
married to Father Larry Mullin, S.J.'s sister 
Gene, 4 children and is "still" associate direc- 
tor of the Harvard College Fund.

Thirty-nine in the van as usual! With all 
the current emphasis on Medic-this and 
Medic-that, don't overlook the Medic-heir 
system we have going in the top Class office. 
Dr. Al Branca stepped down as president at 


the Class meeting in June. He was succeeded 
by Dr. Frank Scnnott for the 1966-1967 term 
and Dr. Gene McAuliffe backs him up as 

Ed Hall succeeded himself as financial sec- 
retary. Tom Turnan, continuing correspon- 
dent, would like to succeed in expanding 
the linage in these notes and so inserts his 
plaintive plea for news here rather than in 
the peroration. 

One item overlooked earlier is that Fr. 
John Lawler, a curate at St. Brigid's Church, 
South Boston, is a major in the Air Force 
Reserve. He is a chaplain attached to HQ- 
Air Force Systems Command and also man- 
ages to log civilian air time in his Beech- 
craft Bonanza. 

We aren't really certain that George Lyons 
has swapped Navy blue for houndstooth 
Norfolk jacket and shooting stick but the 
fact of the matter is he is Commander, 
U.S.N, (ret.), as of this April past. He is 
experimenting with tomatoes, turnips and 
such on his Marshfield acreage now and 
quite willing to talk about his five boys, the 
oldest of whom will graduate from high 
school next year. Bill Holland is also quite 
willing to admit, without duress, that the 
captain of the Boston Latin School football 
team this year is his son, Ed. 

Working from the South Shore to the 
Cape we can report that Arthur Fleming has 
completed his seventh season as owner and 
operator of The Donut Shack in North 
Eastham. Art teachers in the Boston school 
system and the five younger Flemings are 
equally active. Susan, Emmanuel alumnae 
and candidate for the Master's degree in 
Drama at Catholic University, toured Europe 
with a USO troupe this summer. Jane, June 
graduate of Boston State College, has been 
appointed to the Boston school system and 
Paul is at St. John's Prep. Two other daugh- 
ters are at Girls Latin School in Boston. 

Out of state, Ken Devine was appointed 
Assistant Superintendent of Schools in Rye 
Neck, Mamaroneck, New York on July 1 
after a turn as principal of the high school 
there. His eldest, Kevin, entered Stanford 
University this fall and his youngest, Chris- 
topher, entered grade 3. The girls in be- 
tween, Kathleen and Maureen, are members 
of the senior and sophomore classes, respec- 
tively, at Mamaroneck High School. 

In Falls Church, Virginia, Merle Carey 
has taken his stand, with his family of 
course. Merle was a graduate from the United 

or The Alumni 

States Military Academy at West Point in 
the Class of 1943, was decorated several 
times for exploits in Europe, and in Korea 
where he commanded a tank battalion. He 
was on the faculty of the Command and 
General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth 
and also at West Point before retiring as a 
colonel three years ago. Son Chris entered 
Dartmouth this year and Jonathan is in high 
school. Merle is a registered representative 
with Alex Brown & Sons, brokers in Wash- 
ington, D.C. 

Back home again, John Roddy bids fair to 
become the Mr. Chips, or so he alleges, of 
the Williams College School of Banking 
summer faculty. He taught there again this 
year as well as being Counsel, between 
times, for Massachusetts Bankers Association 
and practising law in Boston. We hope men- 
tion herein will not have put the whammy 
on the political aspirations of one of our class- 
mates but, in any case, at press time Pete 
Kerr is a candidate for the Democratic nom- 
ination for Governors Council in the 2nd 
District. At other times Pete is in the legal 
department of N. E. Tel. & Tel., in Boston. 
A lieutenant commander in the United 
States Coast Guard Reserve he has been as- 
signed to represent that seagoing agency on 
the Selective Service (Record) Activity. 

Frank Brennan, President, Union Savings 
Bank of Boston, has been elected Chairman 
of the Boston Group of Mutual Savings 
Banks for the year 1966-1967. 

The incumbent in the corresponding sec- 
retary's office could use some support, too, 
such as a status report from/about Thirty- 
Niners who haven't been cited in these dis- 
patches Jately. Postage collect, if need be!

T"U 15 Sanderson Place, Brighton 

Up-staged and off-centered by the anni- 
versary classes, our activities connected with 
the recent Commencement Week equalled, 
if not surpassed, last year's top draw events. 
No command performances, no social musts, 
only the anticipation of a repeat of the good 
times of last year was the drawing magnet. 
Those who came were not disappointed. 
From the kick-off weekend at Wianno, to 
the family Communion Dinner at the 
Heights, the program was a wonderful suc- 
cess. A tip of an over-sized ten gallon hat 
is due Tom Cudmore and Bill Joy, and their 
several committees for the effort that went 
into making celebration most enjoyable. 

Mention of Wianno brings to mind the 
highlight of another wonderful event on the 
social calendar, the induction of the Presi- 
dent of the college, Father Walsh, as a mem- 
ber of the class of 1940. The presentation of 
the diploma and the reading of the degree 
was made at a dishonest confrontation in 
the hotel ballroom. Father John Dacey, ob- 
viously delighted to be reading and discours- 
ing in Latin again, outdid himself on this 
occasion. Dave Lucey was also presented his 
football shirt from Wake Forest at this con- 
vocation. There is still some doubt that 
Father Dacey, still awed by his return to 
Latin, translated correctly the words, Wake 
Forest. Many claim it should be primeval 
forest. Sitting as a board of regents for the 
occasion, but looking more like a board of 
rejects were Bill Joy, Tom Cudmore, and 
Henry Desmond. With the football season 
now on us, wonder if I can use our dis- 
tinguished classmate's name, not Lucey, 

when I approach the ticket office and in- 
quire if there are any seats left other than 
row 5 in the end zone? 

Speaking of football, those of you who 
plan to take in the Penn State game, if the 
military units parade, keep a weather eye 
for Henry Schmidt. Henry, a Captain in the 
U.S. Navy, is stationed at the Pennsylvania 

Back on the beach, where this column 
was being shaped up, while watching the 
rubber mattress set, and listening on the 
radio to the furor about the surfers at our 
local beaches, it came to mind that we have 
one acknowledged surfing addict in the class. 
Frank Zona, calling San Matteo, California, 
home base for his thriving insurance agency, 
informs me that young Frank is an accomp- 
lished surfer, and can "hang ten" on a surf 
board. Frank and wife, Doris, are very 
active in the C.F.M. and C.C.D. movements 
in their local parish. 

If you were inconvenienced by the recent 
airline strike and are in need of sympathy, 
don't look up Joe McKenney. Joe, as Director 
of Public Relations for the American League 
Baseball Clubs, found himself in St. Louis, 
Missouri, for the All-Star baseball game back 
in July, at the time of that torrid and tragic 
heat wave. Not only did the American 
League come in second, but Joe and his party 
found themselves stranded at the airport. 
With an eye on the pun, I can report that 
the Gillette Razor people, using some sharp 
public relations, bailed out Joe and his group 
by letting them use the keen-looking com- 
pany plane for the return trip to Boston. 

Businessman in nearby Cambridge by pro- 
fession, and sports enthusiast by avocation, 
Vito Ananis still finds time to keep his hand 
in on his first love, football. Vito recently 
signed on to handle the coaching duties of 
the Brighton Knights, a top flight semi-pro 
team in local and New England competition. 
For Tom Cross, now in South Carolina, 
John Roark, out in California, Paul Duffey 
in Pennsylvania, Father John Banks last 
heard of in Baghdad, and Major Jim Stewart 
in far off (by street car) West Roxbury, all 
part of the crowd from Southie, it's nice to 
report nice things about nice people which 
is to say that Larry Howe is now living in 
Wollaston. The Howes have five youngsters. 
The older two, Brian and Bob, are students 
here at the Heights. Brian is in his senior 
year, while Bob graduates next year. Like 
Larry, both boys are well versed in sports. 
Brian is a former footballer for Father Joe 
Shea's young Eagles at B.C. High, while 
Bob played golf for the same school. Larry 
is an electrical engineer for the Boston Edison 

Didn't mention the results of the golf 
tournament at Wianno because I didn't, and 
you wouldn't, believe the scores; however, 
I will report that the squire of Kingston, Pat 
Rafferty, is one of the most respected golfers 
in the state amateur circles. Most recent 
outing was the State Amateur championship 
tournament. Pat busies himself as Vice-Presi- 
dent in charge of New England sales for 
the National Securities and Research Corpora- 
tion located here in Boston. Incidentally, the 
handicap is ten. 

Also in the papers as a starter in the recent 
Tobin Memorial tournament at Hatherly 
Country Club was Henry Desmond. When 
he's not searching out timid, bashful class- 
mates to attend class functions, Henry is 


selling insurance for the Home Insurance 

Made a promise not to mention the names 
of the Wianno partygoers if only to stir up; 
the curiosity of the stay-at-homers and per- 
haps bring them out to the next affair. But 
here we go breaking the promise by thank- 
ing Dr. Ezio Tesone for the showing of his 
slides of our anniversary get together last 
year. Everyone enjoyed them. Which brings 
us to the reason we mentioned the slides. 
Another slides enthusiast, Dr. John Good- 
man, dentist by vocation, and antique car 
buff by avocation, spent the greater part of 
last year's round-up shooting pictures at the 
various events. Benny was asked to show the 
pictures, and someone borrowed them. Now, 
whoever has the slides, will you please get 
them back to their owner. And, if you come 
across Henry McMahon's top hat, still miss- 
ing, that too will be appreciatively received. 

Since the last issue of the News, word hass 
been received from Anaheim, California, that 
Leon Roy died in that city on May 13. At 
the time of his death, Leon was the executive 
director of the Catholic Big Brothers of 
Los Angeles and Orange Counties in Cali- 
fornia. One of Doc Fitzgibbons sociology 
majors, Leon won the respect of his class- 
mates with his soft-spoken, cheerful, and I 
quietly persuasive attitude. His death comes 
as a shock to those of us who knew he had 
undergone major surgery over a year ago, 
and believed that he had recovered com- 
pletely. We extend the deepest sympathy of 
the class to his wife, Louise, his two children, 
David, 15, and Suzanne, 13, and his brother, 
Father Gregory Roy, S.J., a member of the 
faculty here at Boston College. May he rest 
in peace. 

Rev. Msgr. Francis J. Lally, editor of The 
Pilot, was awarded an honorary doctor of 
divinity degree at the Northeastern University 
commencement in June. 

T'JL 6 Crescent Ave., Newton Centre 

Admist the festivities of its twenty-fifth 
anniversary, the class of 1941 took time out 
to mourn the untimely death of Bill Houli- 
han, and express its deepest sympathy to his 
widow, Conchita, and his daughter, Maureen. 
Jim Murray, Paul True, Dave Merrick, Tom 
McDonald, Dick Daley and your correspond- 
ent served as pallbearers at Bill's funeral. Bill 
had worked hard as a member of the anni- 
versary committee and was looking forward 
eagerly to the June get-together. Requiescat 
in pace. 

Thanks to the inspirited direction of Chair- 
man Arthur Jones, with able assistance from 
Dick Daley, Ed Burke, Nick Sottile, Dr. 
Harry Fulchino, Paul True, Fran Blouin, 
and others just as dedicated, the whole pro- 
gram starting with the Stag Night in October 
and including the dinner-dance in February 
and the gatherings at the Heights in June, 
it was a huge success. 

Present at the events, in the first of the 
back-to-the-campus alumni weekend were, 
Bill Glennon, John Bagley, Jack Daley, Jim 
Hickley, Dr. Ralph Struzziero, Dick Dever- 
eux, Ed Burke, Dr. Jack Cranley, Marty 
Carew, Jim Kiely, Len Frisoli, Dave White, 
Jack Kehoe, Jack Callahan, Tom McDonald,

Brewin, Jack Colahan, Ray Scannell, Len 
McDermott, Hank Sheehan, Bob Sliney,

i Except for a few out of towners and 
ibachelors Carlin, Rados and Sotile, all of the 
jabove attended with their charming wives. 
] Adding to the turnout were our respected 
(clergy classmates, Msgrs. Joe Maguire, George 
Kerr, Tom Finnegan, John Kinchla, Fathers 
Ed Cowhig, Jim Radochia, Gene Brissette, 
John Connors and Jim Rogers. 

Chief Marshal Tom Galligan led the Com- 
jmencement parade, along with fellow mar- 
ishals Fran Blouin, Ed Burke, Harry Boltz, 
JBob Rados, Paul Reardon, Arthur Jones, 
Jack Colahan and Jim Murray. The group 
was later present at the President's reception 
ifor them and the recipients of honorary de- 

One of the highlights of the weekend was 
the Baccalaureate Mass concelebrated by 1941 
classmates Msgr. John Broderick, newly 
named rector of St. John's Seminary was 
Msgr. Joe Maguire, secretary to Cardinal 
Gushing, and Msgr. Tom Finnegan, vice- 
chancellor of the archdiocese. 

In attendance at the champagne dinner 
dance were Robert Buck and George Donald- 
son, members of the faculty while we were 
struggling undergraduates. Father Edward 
Douglas, S.J. was on hand for the week-end 
and mingled with his former students of '41 
John Norton, retiring this year, was present 
at the general alumni luncheon on Saturday. 

Following Baccalaureate services on Sun- 
day, Major Francis Dolan, on the staff and 
faculty of the Chaplain School in N.Y. was 
seen renewing old acquaintances. Probably 
the one coming the furthest distance was 
Jack Mulroy who was on from California. 
Jack had further cause to be proud since he 
was accompanied by his Dad, a member of 
the Class of 1902. Jack has two of his family 
at Pomona College, son Tom, a junior in 
Zoology, and daughter Juliana, a freshman. 
By coincidence, Jack's wife is an alumna of 
the same institution. , 

A face not seen around these parts for, 10, 
these twenty-five years was that of Paul 
Reardon, now a long time Chicagoan. Paul, 
the father of a daughter and four sons, is an 
I auditor and tax consultant and is attached 
to the staff of Lasalle Extension University. 
| He is the author of works in the fields of 
finance, accounting, commercial law and tax- 
ation. A loyal alumnus, Paul hopes to route 
all his boys to B.C. 

Another of the returnees was John Hayes, 
who is a salesman for the Rome Cable Divi- 
sion of Alcoa and is residing in New York 
City. John's 22 year old son John is manager- 
I supervisor for Revere Copper & Brass in 
| Rome, Italy while daughter Elaine is a stu- 
j dent at Oswego State College. 
' Bill Foley, looking not a pound heavier, 
advises us that he is still engaged in social 
j work, being a consultant in Newark, New 
Jersey, a school for dropouts. The proud 
father of six. Bill's girl Regina attends Cald- 
well College for Women. We have learned 

that Dr. George Casserly for the past fifteen 
years has been an eminent ophthalmologist 
and eye surgeon in San Pedro, California and 
has recently completed a course in plastic 
surgery in Austria. 

A sight for sore eyes (speaking of same) 
at the reunion was Bob Morris, a veteran 
teacher at South Boston High and the father 
of three. 

Joe O'Reilly one of the '41ers top scholars 
of year, is now a successful building con- 
tractor. Joe has four children, of whom Kath- 
leen is at Carney Hospital School of Nursing 
and son Paul is an undergrad at Providence. 
Still another familiar face was Jack Bagley 
who is an FBI agent stationed in New York. 
Jack has four children including a son en- 
rolled at the University of Dayton. Remin- 
iscing with all his old cronies was Henry 
Hamrock currently a resident of Long Island, 
New York, a tycoon in the medical supplies 
business and the father of a large and splen- 
did family. 

Still youthful appearing and handsome, 
although a little sparser on top, was Harry 
Boltz, now once again residing in his old 
home town of Syracuse. Harry is still in the 
airline business and prospering. 

Paul McGrath's wife Jane writes from 
Omaha that Paul, assistant to the President 
of Leo A. Daly Co. in that city, at the time 
of writing was on his third trip around the 
world in the past two years. Most of his 
time is spent in India and Pakistan, with 
some time spent in Afganistan, Nepal, Thai- 
land, Hong Kong and Hawaii. 

A teacher at Northeastern Junior High in 
Somerville, John Guinee has a son David 
Vincent entering the School of Education at 
the Heights this fall. 

Major John Keohane always one of the 
most popular members of the class, is serving 
as Chaplain at Blytherville Air Force Base, 

Paul O'Neal sends word that he is with 
the Plastics Division at Union Carbide and 
is living in Darien, Connecticut. 

Capt. Thomas J. Gallagher, Jr., U.S.N, is 
commanding officer of the USS Princeton 
involved in the Viet Nam war. Captain Gal- 
lagher's ship was one casualty evacuation 
control ship during action around Chu Lai 
during October 1965. 

Frank O'Neill, owner of O'Neill's Grocery 
& Liquor store in San Francisco, has been 
elected the President of the B.C. Club of 
Northern California. 

Martin Carew, Jr., Assistant Manager of 
the Boylston St., Boston office, of Hornblower 
& Weeks, Hemphill, Noyes recently returned 
from a series of Resident Management Sem- 
inars held at the firm's New York Head- 

President Johnson has promoted Albert V. 
Nyren to Class 2 in the Foreign Service of

L.B.J, and the Nugents, in the Society 
Wedding of the year, had nothing compared 
to the swinging social set at Alumni Hall 
on May 15, 1966. This was the annual Re- 
union Dance of the best class to ever leave 
the hallowed portals at Chestnut Hill (for 
those who missed the gala, the class I am 
talking about is ours '53). There were many 
old buddies and gals, thin ones, fat ones, bald 
and grey haired old men and women, who 
had the time of their lives reminiscing of 
the good old days and catching up to date 
with their long missed classmates; to give 
you, who missed, an idea of a few who at- 
tended: Let's see, there were the "two- 
somes" of Mr. and Mrs. William Mahoney,

pects to get some Shore Duty in New Orleans 
for the next two years. (Some life, Jack!) 

Bob Waldron wrote from Pope John

although Bob would like to attend, the rector 
feels that such things as dancing will have 
to wait for Vatican III.

ski in June and is currently residing in Stone- 
ham. May you enjoy a happy and blessed 
life together . . . We hear Mary Rose Griffin 
and her family have returned to Massachu- 
setts and are again living in Belmont . . . 
Your Nursing School correspondent almost 
visited several classmates in California. I was 
in Hawaii during the airline strike and, on 
arrival back in California, actually picked 
up the phone book but I became lucky and 
got a flight home . . . An up to date class 
list is available for the Basic Nursing Section. 
If you want one let me know. 

At a luncheon meeting of the Boston Col-

There have been a few comments that the 
Class of 1955 notes have not contained much 
information on more members of our class. 
How about sending a post card, or letter, 
letting us know where you are, and what 
you are doing these days. All information 
concerning graduates of A&S and CBA 
should be sent to Phil Doherty at the above

We are pleased to report a grand response 
by the Class of 1956 to our 10th Anniversary 
Celebration held in conjunction with Alumni 
Week-End Activities in June of this year. 
Hopefully, this magnificent turnout will 
augur well for all future Class activities. 

Noted in attendance on Alumni Week-End 
(and this enumeration doesn't purport to be 
all inclusive) were the Tom Mulcahy's of 
Sudbury, the Brendan Connells of Westwood, 
Jim Pender and wife from Walpole, Ed and 
Nan McDermott, down from Hampton, New 
Hampshire, Jim Hart and spouse, the Tom 
Hanlons of Abington (the Hanlon's Shoe 
man), Dr. Eugene McCarthy and his wife 
from New York, where Gene serves on the 
faculty of Columbia Medical School, the 
John Moloneys of Brockton, Long John

Folan and spouse, all the way up from 
Virginia, the Tom Hegartys of Somerville, 
Tony Solomita and his wife, our Portland, 
Me. representatives, Paul Weyand and Jim 
Shea, with respective mates, John Scannell 
and wife from Arlington, Leo Powers and 
his Mrs., Brian and Rose Ann Concannon, 
now of Marshfield, Anne Sweeney Donovan 
and her husband Jim, who did his under- 
graduate work up on Mount St. James, but 
saw the light thereafter and pursued an 
MBA at the Heights, Butch Curry and his 
wife from Medfield — Butch is a sales 
representative for Simplex Wire and Cable 
Co. — Bob Caffrey and spouse, who now 
hail from Rockland, Mass., Bob Jennings and 
Pauline from Dorchester, George Baierlein 
and his wife from Needham, — and many, 
many others. Of course, "John Barleycorn" 
was present, as usual, and in his inimitable 
manner he loosened tongues, not character- 
istically garralous, and prompted some 
Charlestons and Hully-Gully's by some 
otherwise hesitant legs. His contributions to 
the Week-End were marked, as per usual, 
by the presence of intolerable pain in the 
region of the parietal bone of the skull on 
Saturday and Sunday mornings, more com- 
monly referred to as 'hang-over'. — but all 
in attendance it was worth it. 

Art Reilly now the proud father of a son, 
(whose photograph appeared in the Traveler 
as "Baby of the Day"), Christening was by 
Father Frank Strahan. Art is on the Board 
of Government of the Alumni Sodality, and 
is employed by the Boston Redevelopment 
Authority as a Development Specialist. 

Ed McDermott is practicing law in 
Hampton, New Hampshire. He married a 
New Hampshire native, Nan, and they 
presently reside at Hobbs Road in Hampton, 
N. H. 

Bill Connell, CBA, makes his home on 
Albermarle Rd., Newton, Mass., with his 
wife, the former Agnes Hannan of Brighton, 
and their four children. Bill is in Computer 
Sales with Honeywell, Inc. in their Wellesley, 
Mass. EDP Division. Following graduation 
with an ROTC Commission, Bill spent a 
year or so with Uncle Sam's forces in 
Europe in close proximity to the Iron Curtain. 

John Folan, one of our more long-legged 
brethren, originally hailing from Norwood, 
Mass., now resides in Fredericksburg, Vir- 
ginia, where he is engaged in the insurance 
business. John and Mrs. Folan have accounted 
for four additions to Clan Folan. John will 
be remembered as one of our more consistent 

middle-distance track performers. Prior to 
entering the insurance industry, John spent 
a few years before the mast as a Naval officer. 

Jim Shea, an old Somervillite, now calls 
home — Heather Road, Portland, Maine, 
where he resides with his wife and five 
children. Jim, one of our more able classics 
scholars, is using his linguistic talents, aug- 
mented by an Economics major, to advance 
the cause of Henry Ford and his Motor 
Company in the Northern-most reaches of 
New England. Prior to enhancing the Ford 
Motor Company, Jim served a hitch with 
the Marines as a Lieutenant. Jim reports 
that his kids were born in 5 different states 
of our Union and, understandably, in the 
face of this record, he and his wife look 
somewhat apprehensively upon any further 
interstate moves. 

Living across the street from Jim in Port- 
land is Paul Weyand and his family, cur- 
rently numbering four. Paul is a sales repre- 
sentative for a paper products company. Paul 
served as a Supply Officer in the Navy and, 
like Jim, his children can claim several 
different states as their native ground. Paul 
and Jim are both B. C. High grads, to add 
yet another touch to their similar histories. 

We had a letter recently from the sister 
of John P. Kane, one of our physicists in '56'. 
She advised that John went on to West 
Point after B. C. and is presently a Captain 
in the Signal Corps of the Army, stationed 
in Viet Nam. Certainly in such a forlorn 
place he would welcome some mail from 
former classmates. A letter can find him 
care of the following address: 

Captain John P. Kane, 090897 
Hd. Qtrs. — 2nd Signal Group 
APO 96307, San Francisco, California 

Bill Toomey of 1422 Stagecoach Drive, 
Richardson, Texas wrote in recently to 
acknowledge the propagatory efforts of class- 
mates, reported in the last edition of this 
journal as members of the 'Parents of Six 
Club'. He allowed as though he and his 
wife, Pat, could not apply for membership 
however, in so far as they have exluded 
themselves by reason of the advent of their 
seventh child. Five of the Toomey children 
attend St. Paul The Apostle Grammar School 
in Richardson. Bill is employed with Texas 
Instruments, Inc., in their Semi-Conductor 

It would appear that several Eagles out 
of our class have seen fit to perch or roost 
on Texas soil. To name but a few, Bill 
Toomey, Jim King, Bernie Hill. Appears 
like we have the nucleus of a Texas B. C. 
Club if they can ever get together across 
that much-talked about wide-expanse. Per- 
haps, they might meet and take a cruise up 
the Perdenales River on a bird watching 

Rev. Larry (Red) Lennon, formerly from 
Brighton, reports that he is currently assigned 
to the Cathedral Parish in Manchester, New 
Hampshire. His summer duties take him 
to St. Patrick's Church at Hampton Beach, 
where he would welcome classmates who 
might be on vacation in the area. Prior to 
his present assignment Father Larry had 
been stationed in Berlin, New Hampshire, 
where, amongst other duties, he was a 
teacher-coach at Notre Dame High School, 
which would ring familiar with high school 
hockey fans. Father Larry reported that 
another classmate, John Murphy, out of 
Woburn, is now Father Jude, OFM. Father 


Jude was stationed at the Arch Street Shrinm '• 
in Boston a while back, and, more recently! 
he has been assigned to the faculty at St* : 
Bonaventure's College in upper New Yorlrl - 
State. Another classmate, whom Father Larry! - 
mentioned, was Vinny Durnan, originalrjj] :

We are advised that another one of ouril ; 
mathematicians, C. Norman Canning, passed \ 
away in September of 1965. Norm's pre-: ; 
mature death came, unfortunately at a pin-i' : 
nacle in his career, after he had just beeni 
appointed Director of the Computer Center 
at Holy Cross. To his wife and three 
daughters, we convey our most profound i 
sympathy and assurance that Norm, together 
with other deceased members of our class,, 
will always be remembered in our prayers. 
Requiescat in pace.

The girls from the School of Nursing had 
a grand time at the reunion. Everyone that 
attended had a very enjoyable evening re- 
hashing old times looking at school pictures, 
and talking about their families. During the 
evening the following news worthy items 
were gathered. 

Janet (Doherty) Roes husband, Tom has 
recently joined forces with the Internal

A Master's degree from Boston College 
School of Business Administration was 
awarded on June 15th to Bob Dill. Bob is 
the husband of Alice Marie Kearney and is 
employed at Digital Equipment Corporation. 

Some well-remembered classmates who 
couldn't attend the party, but sent greetings 
included Esta Keefe, married and living in 
Nevada, who wrote a very typical note 
saying she, ". . . didn't think she could 
make it."; Anna Wall, also married and 
living in Hawaii; and Macy Finn Doherty, 
now the mother of seven children 1 We 
thought she must surely be the most prolific 
of the class until we learned of the birth of 
Justin Xavier in July to Helen King Kennedy 
and Bill, bringing their number of offspring 
to seven also!

Also seen at the party were Connie Regolino, 
Barbara Higgins, Betty Wilson and Betty 
Ann Casey. It was so good to see Nancy 
Moran, Anne Gilligan of Needham, and 
Nancy Nangle of Hull, even though I must 
confess to loss of memory concerning their 
marriage names. Don O'Hanley was up from 
Newport, R.I., with the latest in Stock 
Market tips, and from Concord came Denise 
McCabe Igo. Carolyn Kenney Foley and 
Janet Corcoran, now married, were chatting 
with old friends, and everyone agreed on, 
"... why don't we do this more often?" 

The reunion in June brought many of us 
back together again including Tom Mag- 
narelli Reis and his Mrs. Tom is coaching at 
Westwood High; Anne Maguire Finnegan 
and Dave, who came from Virginia: and

The Business and Academic Worlds are not so far apart as 
many people would like to believe — for upon both fall the respon- 
sibilities of sustaining the growth of the Community. 

It is wrong to think that education ceases when a person 
graduates. He has completed the formal preparation, to be sure ; 
but an educated man is one who continues to grow and to share 
his knowledge with others. 

Many Boston College men in our organization have shown 
their dedication to the principles of education through service to 
their Company, their Community and their College. These are 
activities worthy of every alumnus of every college.
